Red light = prepare to go?

Last weekend, Corporation of Hamilton made a move to remove the status of flashing amber from some of its traffic lights, and revert to the red-red/amber-green progression for sitting traffic. Not sure why (a) this was done so quickly, and (b) why more notice and information was given to the public. Heck, I couldn’t even find the archived article on either of the Big 2 news sites. It sure isn’t on

What does that mean for motorists? Only that now after pedestrians have crossed, motorists (particularly the bikes) zoom through instead of waiting for the red-amber status. That’s right. Before the amber even shows up.

Brilliant, make the changes, without posting signage or enlisting police officers to at least ensure people aren’t completely confused or decide to take matters into their own hands.
