Just another bobsmith curiosity thread!

Williamsport City has about 40-50 traffic lights, close to 100 if you include the built-up areas immediately outside the city limits.

We have one. Sometimes I wonder why we even have that to tell the truth.

Too [insert expletive here] many. We have them every other block, we have them at U-Turns. The way the streets are set up here one intersection can have 2 to 3 sets of traffic lights requiring you to stop twice if you want to turn, etc. Turning left can require you to stop 3 times at 3 different lights. When you throw in traffic, catching a light on red can result in you stopping at the same light 2 or 3 times.
SERIOUSLY.. only in NOLA

One of the few things I've always hated about this place
