|04:34 am - i had a sub from the wildcatessan today. it was yummy.|
waitaminute! i just thought of something... ya know how people always say traffic lights set for 35mph are also set for 70? that doesn't work! if, at 35, it takes 20 seconds to go from 1 light to the next, then lights set for 35 will switch to green 20 seconds after the one before it. so if you're going 70 you'll get there in 10 seconds and have to wait around.
or am i missing something blindingly obvious?
in other news, i suck. suck suck suck. i'm going to bed.
state: i give up

People always say that? In many cases, they can't set lights to cascade like that unless you're on a one-way street, because it would completely fuck people going the other way. Given that, on two-way streets downtown (here), the only way to get anywhere without being messed by light cycles is to a) speed, b) run yellows, and c) be lucky. There's also a couple of intersections near where i live that used to requrie (when going one way) to floor it when the first turned green, go 10 over the speed limit, and cruise through the yellow at the bottom of the hill. They've adjusted it so now, in the evening anyway, I have to go 20 over. Oh well, they asked for it.
Oh, and if you're gonna talk about 'suck' and 'bed', make sure i'm around. take care, man.
in goffstown, the lights are never constant. the cops and firemen have those light changing dealies on top of their cars/trucks. the only experience i have with a light remaining constant is on south willow st, where if you hit the first green going 60, you should hit every green light as long as you maintain that speed. i don't know if that's ever worked for you. try it out, there are never cops on south willow.
haha i've been pulled over on south willow before..
your missing the obvious
firstoff why would there be lights for some on goign 70 miles per hour. By set to 35mph and 70mph means this: if lights on a road that is 35mph- each light would be X meters away- so when you get to the next your golden (err green) right? So if you goign 70mph on a road with multiple lights ( where is that?) each light would be set 2X meters away. same amount of time. diffrent distances
