What the hell is the deal with a stop light at the bottom of a freeway on ramp?
Do they think we're too stupid to understand "MERGE"?
Traffic flow my patoot!
Just picking up speed to merge, whoa, stop, OK, now your behind a 66 pinto 3 cylinder that took 2 weeks to get up to speed SON OF A B****!
Semi won't yield, another truck on your bumper, yeah buddy this is a well planned system!
This bright idea brought to you by the makers of chip seal, another AZDOT product.

It's a brilliant way to back freeway traffic up onto the surface streets where it belongs!

I FUCKING HATE THOSE STUPID THINGS. I BLOW RIGHT THRU THEM ALL THE TIME. I get mad at the numb nuts imbeciles who actually wait for these god damned things.

Also, It's a great way to kill gas mileage. Think about it. You come to a complete stop before you have to merge into traffic moving at 65 mph, at least. So you've waisted all the momentum you had coming down the onramp, and now you have to stand on your accelerator to get into traffic.

I FUCKING WANT TO BLOW THOSE RETARDED THINGS TO BITS!


ETA: FUCK ISLAM TOO!

I think the lights were inspired by Muslims.

Muslims should suicide bomb those fucking lights! Kill two ass aches with one stone!

Nothing is worse than a red left-turn arrow light.

Best thing ever invented for clogging up traffic.

That and inept drivers yaking on their f'in phones... argh.

Actually, the lights are effective during peak drive times, but nonetheless pretty aggravating. They're not designed for gas mileage, they're designed to regulate traffic on the freeways.....

I understand what the intention was, but why should freeway traffic be backed up onto the surface streets? It's the usual unintended consequences from Government Brilliance.

Recently they set those fucking things even slower on the 60. Now the whole fucking onramp is clogged. At peak times traffic can back all the way up to the surface streets.

AND DON'T FUCKING GET ME GOING ON LIGHT RAIL EITHER!

Every time you stop at one you are photographed. Your pic is sent to a data base for facial ID. THEN your movements are put in ANOTHER data base for future sale for profit.

Hows that?

Oh I really love when the people do that! That's funny. I've actually seen some dumb motherfuckers do that!

That, and people who don't know how to live without them.

I once sat, for 2 lights, as the second car back in a left turn lane. Bastard wouldn't turn unless he got a light.

I finally backed up a car length or two to trip it for him.
