Broken: (Just for Fun) Traffic lights sculpture

Traffic_lightsKip Nicol points out a picture from REALJimBob's Flickr photostream:

This traffic light sculpture in Canary Wharf in London is located in a real roundabout - I wonder how many people have actually mistaken this sculpture for a real traffic light cluster!



I think I would be sitting there for Days if I was confronted with that Behemoth...

It is funny and interesting at the same time. It seems like traffic signals are sprouting like weeds around here. They are never timed right, so I usually end up having to stop at every single one of them. Usually when a road is widened from 2 to 4 lanes, all the minor intersections seem to get signalized. There really needs to be a law to limit municipalities on how many traffic signals they can put on state routes. It just seems to invite dangerous driving as people attempt to "beat the light".

^Yeah, but what's the other option? Leave out the traffic lights and invite dangerous driving as people try to beat each other?

would be rather confusing if it was real
