So in Utah with three way intersections like the one in the subdivision story the crosswalk across the main through street will go to walk while the turn signals go to a flashing yellow, just meaning yield to crosswalk or cross traffic.

Cross walk lights and traffic lights can occur simultaneously in some lights. It's stupid, but it happens. I noticed one just the other day. Not truly safe if you ask me, but pedestrian always has right of way if they have a green light to cross, regardless of other traffic lights.

The subdivision crossroad thing is definetely working, at least in Germany such a T intersection which combines green light for the walkers with a green light for the subdivision are pretty common and cars just have to wait for the pedastrians to leave the crossing before clearing the crossing. If there are no pedastrians and you jump out of your car, press the button and get back you can indeed just drive a bit later because you gained yourself an additional 'green' which you would not have had otherwise and although it might not be legal or supported it isn't illegal either. It's just a little traffic hack, noone has yet thought about regulating, at least over here. If you'll be seen be a very grunty cop, he might come for you with some bulshit that won't hold up in court but usually the police couldn't care less as you're not only doing nothing illegal but you're not even putting someone in harm with it. It doesn't even count as 'Avoiding a red light be taking a turn' or something like that, as you are not avoiding any red lights :D

hoa can't single out someone to apply a rule to. if caught doing so they must completely remove the rule. if they refuse they could face fines. i would say it's not evn a hard court case, but that would be a lie. you don't even have to go to court. just send a letter and it will be automatically resolved. this guy could have easily and legally solved his problem in another, less disputable, way if he'd focused his research on their application of the rule rather than the rule itself. that's u.s. law for ya!

In Australia, crosswalks only stop traffic on that street, however, perpendicular streets can still go EVEN IF UR CROSSING and its really dumb but perfectly legal.
shad0wniy Hace 21 un día
at the beginning of a cycle a cross walk extends the amount of time by 5-30 secs(it is dependent of the length of road and avg walking speed) as it keeps the red light red for the allot time for any peds to cross and after the count down the green light turns yellow and then red at witch point the light that was red then become green, it can be observed by simply heading down to any intersection and watching the ped sign count down. some places have an auto ped system witch keeps the ped sign in tune with the traffic cycle as the normal means of increasing the amount of time the light stays green can and will cause a traffic build up on car heavy roads as just having the green light remain green for just a few extra seconds causes a traffic build up over time and wont be fully realized until a breaking point

If that’s happened in aus (with the traffic lights story) it would allow you to turn but normally you need to wait for the pedestrians
Srta.TacoMal Hace 25 días
Fresh (bless his aesthetic heart) is probably assuming the stoplights are arrows, which is where his logic gets messed up. The stoplights are likely two normal green circles, not a left and right green arrow. Fresh's logic is that pedestrian lights shouldn't turn white on a green arrow that intersects them, since white pedestrian lights and green arrow both indicate right-of-way. If you drop the assumption that they're arrows (it's unlikely they're arrows since this is a small street with little to no pedestrians), OP's story is fine. Pedestrian lights can be white on a green circle stoplight, because green circle doesn't mean right-of-way (ergo left turners have to yield to pedestrians).

Pressing the crosswalk button for the main road side will lengthen the light, not only adding time for "pedestrians" but for the cars also. As far as I know, it isn't illegal for someone to press the crosswalk button to lengthen their time.

So from what the OP said his crosswalk is rarely used so is someone were to get out pand ush the button, get back in the car, they're light would turn green and the major street lights will turn red because nobody is Crossing on the crosswalk they don't have to worry about hitting pedestrians. So essentially they're faking out the crosswalk system. It actually makes perfect sense.

Actually that traffic mapping would work if you play it by a different state, for example Australia. We drive on the opposite sides of the roads (as well as upside down) and due to that, left turners would have to stop and give way, whilst right turners would wait for the light, and the cross walks do lengthen times greatly.

There is a light in the center of my town easy west is a major road and is a highway on either side of the city, north south is also technically a highway but almost no one uses that to pass though my town all directions have 4 lanes plus a central turn lane and a right turn slip lane the north and southbound road would narrow into a single lane for north and south with a shared turn lane in roughly 1/2 a block(a full block for us but i think we have half block segments for most of our street layout), Now this light used to be green east west for about 1-5 minutes depending on traffic and time of day., and then northbound would go green for about 10 seconds and unless everyone was on it and used both the left and right lanes to go strait then not everyone made it, then southbound would go this light wasnt as bad because it had about 15 seconds but it did often not get everyone through, roughly 2 years ago they made a change to lengthen the lights for north and south because people were running the lights and literally flooring it to allow everyone behind though, I personally would use the right straight lane which was usually empty, floor it to get ahead of the first person in the left lane, and then merge left before my lane ended, sometimes i couldnt get ahead and was forced to turn right but at least i got through the light

For new Mexican roads the crosswalk crossing time extends the turning green lights for the road going the same direction as you have to wait for pedestrians for turning before making a turn thus with no actual pedestrians you get the longer time of 30 ish seconds in the turn cycle to allow more cars to move
What's there to understand? You get out of your car. Hit the button to cross directly forward of your position. Then your light turns green and you can go.

Quarnozian Hace un mes
6:56 OP stated there are *no pedestrians.* People hop out of their car to hit the pedestrian button, then hop back in the car. Since the system *thinks* there are people crossing, it stays green longer to give the people and traffic enough time to make it through the intersection.
Jenn Griffith
Jenn Griffith Hace un mes
You're overthinking the crosswalk situation. In my area, crosswalk times are thirty seconds for pedestrians to cross safely (countdown numbers appear on the crosswalk light) and then an extra ten seconds for cars. If the OP's traffic light situation is similar, they get a full thirty-five to forty second light, because there are never pedestrians at this intersection, as OP mentioned.

At 7:11 I’ll give what happens where I live So basically there is a white line just before the cross walk and underneath it is a sensor so if it wasn’t picking up sensors anywhere else it would just let the light stay green
Sawta Hace un mes
For the crosswalk story: One single lane leaving the subdivision, not two. (There isn't enough physical space for two cars to be beside one another.) The crosswalk is likely to the *right* of the subdivision, not to the left, mine is setup this way. Also, not sure about their timer situation, but with mine, during non-peak, non-daylight hours, the pedestrian button gets "on demand" access due to the distance they need to travel to get across. That is, the main roads lights are typically green for a very long cycle, but as soon as the pedestrian button is pressed, it triggers a yellow/red light cycle so pedestrians can cross. This also means that the light just so happens to change in our subdivisions favour, although our situation isn't nearly as bad as what was described.

You push the cross walk button to go cross the street in the y direction. It turns the x direction street lights red quicker and leaves the y direction green longer to allow for the pedestrians

Let's use your image for the crosswalk story. If the crosswalk was to the east and was north/south running, then hitting the button would give red lights to the right turning northbound traffic, as well as the east and west bound traffic on the main street. It would, however, give a green light for the left turning northbound lane (the one that is getting backed up) if there was no crosswalk on the west side of the intersection.

Ryan Aiken
Ryan Aiken Hace un mes
Little late, but traffic signal tech here: crosswalk buttons do reset the cycle of lights on MOST intersections. If it is pressed on the right hand side (when facing the main road that runs perpendicular to the side road) it will cause the green light for that road to be longer, which gives both the pedestrians time to cross as well as have time for cars to wait for pedestrians to cross and make it through the light. A lot of intersections work off of different timing for crosswalks/light cycles, but the generality for crosswalks is they usually have superiority over moving traffic.
Nick F
Nick F Hace un mes
For the crosswalk, OP said that "nearly everybody turns left" and "even if you want to turn right". That doesn't necessarily mean it's a three way intersection. Perhaps it's a four way that simply goes into another development on the other side. Thus there would be no reason for the vast majority of people leaving one subdivision to enter the other.

That last one reminds me of my former roommate...an old work mate of mine and his pregnant wife invited me to stay in their spare bedroom when I was down on my luck, and I was of course grateful, I still am. But he failed to tell me that she was a hoarder and that they both were total slobs. They had two dogs that pissed and shat all over the house, which they would pick up but never clean, so the carpets reeked of dog shit. He stayed home and played video games all day while his _pregnant wife_ went to her grueling job as a financial advisor, and I just sort of stayed in my room cuz I'm a naturally shy, awkward person and I just didn't want to raise waves. The wife was rather intimidating, very bossy and I get the feeling she felt threatened that her husband invited a thinner, younger woman was staying in her home. I didn't really eat much, but I did the dishes occasionally. He would always leave them piled up to the ceiling and NEVER rinsed them off after using them, so they were caked with dried food. But I did my best. hen I say I barely ate, I barely ate. I would just get pre-made stuff and the occasional MRE. Not that healthy I know, but like I said, I was really intimated and their house as nasty, I did NOT want to cook in that filthy kitchen and preferred to stay by myself. He got really mad at me, asking why I never came downstairs to socialize with them. I didn't wanna tell him it was cuz his house made me feel nauseous and his wife yelled at me constantly, so I just said I've always been withdrawn and that I was sorry, it had nothing to do with him, it's just how I was. He didn't accept that. He soon began to drop passive aggressive comments, like "if not for me you'd be back at your parent's house" (I had been kicked out by my abusive ex whom happened to be an acquaintance of my friend and he saved me from being homeless or having to go back to my extremely domineering and controlling parent's home). Eventually his wife had their kid, and I have a _very_ strong aversion to babies, so I really didn't come downstairs at all. He would knock on my door to shove his kid in my face, then get really pissed off when I didn't immediately coo over her. I had grown very depressed, and he thought the sight of his kid would somehow snap me out of it. Hell if I know why he thought that's how depression works, but still. So between my depression and the new baby, I was more terrified to come out of my room than ever. Doubly so now that I knew he was annoyed with me. I finally was able to move out, but he and I haven't really spoken since. It's really sad.

@fresh, Re the traffic light story - the OP says the light only stayed green for 5 seconds when triggered by a car. By pushing the button to request a pedestrian interval, the light will be held green for the length of time required for a pedestrian to safely cross the street. Here is a copy/paste from a civil engineering signal timing planning guide: "...The pedestrian crossing time serves as a constraint on the green time allocated to each phase of a cycle. Pedestrians can safely cross an intersection as long as there are not any conflicting movements occurring at the same time. (Permitted left and right turns are common exceptions to this rule.) This allows pedestrians to cross the intersection in both the green interval and the intergreen interval. Thus, the sum of the green interval and the intergreen interval lengths, for each phase, must be large enough to accommodate the pedestrian movements that occur during that phase. At this point, two separate conditions arise. If you have an intersection in which the pedestrian movements are not assisted by a pedestrian signal, you need to make sure that the green interval that you provide for vehicles will service the pedestrians as well. In this case, the minimum green interval length is somewhere between 4 and 7 seconds. You already took care of the pedestrian crossing time considerations when you calculated the intergreen period length. (See the module on the intergreen period.) If, on the other hand, you plan to provide a pedestrian signal, you need to calculate the pedestrian crossing time as described below. This will not only give you the information you need to program the pedestrian signal, but it will also allow you to find the minimum green interval for your vehicular movements as well. We only need a few assumptions to calculate the pedestrian crossing time. Assumptions: The WALK signal will be illuminated for approximately 7 seconds. A pedestrian will begin to cross the street just as the DON'T WALK signal begins to flash. Pedestrians walk at an average pace of 4 feet/second. The WALK interval must be completely encompassed by the green interval of the accompanying vehicle movements. Calculations: The total time required for the pedestrian movements (T) is the sum of the WALK allowance (Z) and the time required for a person to traverse the crosswalk (R). R = (width of intersection, in feet)/(4 ft/sec) T = Z + R The pedestrian crossing time governs the minimum green time for the accompanying phase in the following way. If the time it takes the pedestrian to traverse the crosswalk (R) is greater than the intergreen time(I), the remainder of the time (Z+R-I) must be provided by the green interval. Therefore, the minimum green interval length (gmin) for each phase can be calculated using the equation below. gmin = T - intergreen time(I) or gmin = Z + R - I If the above equation results in a minimum green interval that is less than the WALK time (Z), the minimum green interval length is equal to the WALK time (Z). gmin = Z You now have the minimum length of the green interval for the vehicular movements, as governed by the pedestrian movements. The WALK interval for the pedestrians is whatever you assumed, and the DON'T WALK flashes for the remainder of the green and intergreen intervals. Many design manuals suggest that the distance the pedestrian is assumed to travel can be reduced to the distance between the curb and the center of the farthest lane. On another note, if the vehicular traffic requires an extended green period, feel free to let the pedestrians partake of the extra time as well..." Note that a normal city street in the USA is approximately 10/12-feet wide per lane depending on road speed design. For a two lane road, this would be a total road width of 20-24-feet. Using the pedestrian speed of 4ft/sec this is 5-6 seconds of flashing "don't walk" - in addition the the minimum 5 seconds for the "walk" light. Comparing this to OP's 5 second green prior to doing this, now they would have 10-11 seconds (a 100% increase). If the road was 4-lanes wide, this would increase the green time from 10-11 seconds all the way up to 15-17 seconds - a roughly 340% increase in green cycle. Since the passenger gets out to push the button, and then returns to the vehicle, there do not have to wait for a pedestrian to cross, so the entire green cycle is usable for cars. Light timing for specific functions are governed by adopted formal standards, and can't be changed by a local politician without a licensed civil engineer signing off on a study about liability and safety (a very expensive and time consuming undertaking that most engineers would just say "no" to, as they can be sued and lose their license if they get it wrong) - so this is a slick way to stick it to a lazy/combative city traffic department.

I have a cross walk in my area that functions like this. The cross lights that function the same direction as the flow of traffic lengthen the light timing for the same direction. It will be 30 seconds for the pedestrians AND the traffic that can turn through those lanes. The few pedestrians that actually cross will normally be through the lanes for you to be able to turn within 10 of the 30 for you to turn. A left turn through that crosswalk should be fine, and if someone is crossing, anyone turning should be able to see.

The story stated there are NO PEDESTRIANS crossing at all, so there is no one to worry about hitting! Also where I am there is usually only one crosswalk on the side of the road where the side road traffic turns into the flow of traffic, not having to cross lanes! And where they need to cross the lanes to drive in the opposite direction there is no crosswalk, again preventing pedestrians from holding up turning traffic, which usually helps when there is timed lights! Also, I am not sure how crosswalks work where you are, but where I am you get seconds where the opposite lights turn yellow then red, so once the cars slow and stop, you get a couple seconds, then an actual green light pedestrian crossing countdown of 15 seconds for the "pedestrian" to cross the road while the light is green and then a few more seconds after that while the light changes back from green to yellow to red! So it extends the red light for people to turn by at least 3 or 4 (and even more) times the actual scheduled light changes!! I have a light just down my road where we do this all the time because of heavy traffic both ways and drivers trying to get out onto the main drag cannot get out safely ever even when turning into the flow of traffic! So we run out and press the button, which starts the lights! Again on the crosswalk we use, only one side of the light has a legal crosswalk, so anyone who has to cross the 2 lanes of traffic into the opposite flow of traffic direction (left in my case) does NOT have a crosswalk, so when it is on multiple people can safely turn, while the crosswalk is on the other side, so if by chance there is an actual pedestrian pressing the button, people can get out of the side street onto the busy main street! I'm not sure if that makes sense, but I understand the HOA story!

10:50 fuck yes cookout is the best fast food on earth and the only reason I hate living in Michigan (there aren't any neat me). I loved cookout when I lived in NC and I can't wait for the day that I get my teeth on a cookout burgers again!

the pedestrian thing is totally legit. normally, there are 2 cycles that can be triggered at the intersection. one where there's just cars, and one where there's pedestrians. with the car one, it just sets the road lights to green for X seconds, and then it turns yellow, then red. with the pedestrian one, it'll turn both the pedestrian walk light, and the car light, green, then once the pedestrian one has run out, it'll turn the pedestrian one off, and basically run the first cycle. the only thing people need to do is be cautious at the intersection, as pedestrians have right of way, so you let them walk, even though there's a green turn light. (normally with a "give way to pedestrians" sign)

I live in a very busy city. Where if you push a cross walk it will near instantly give the pedestrian the right to walk, and turn all needed lights red. So it is possible that they are able to make a single light stay green longer. :)

I've seen an intersection as described in the post. Idk why they do it or if it helps traffic congestion, but I just wanted to say that they do exist.

According to your intersection diagram, the pedestrian signal to activate would be the one on the right. I assume there are separate left turn arrow and right turn arrows, because of the crosswalks. With that pedestrian walk signal activated, the left turn arrow would remain green during the pedestrian cycle. I've seen other situations with different crossing configurations that the pedestrian signals can be used to the benefit of traffic.

With someone having to walk across 4-5 lanes of traffic, the walk lights are probably up for at least a 20 second timer before going to a do not walk sign. Then enough time is given for pedestrians to get out of the intersection, usually another 5-10 seconds. So if the light is changed due to the crosswalk button being pressed, it will naturally be a longer light then the super short one that the cars are typically given. The actual layout of the intersection isn't important. The important bits is that there's never any actual pedestrians and the button pressed has to be for pedestrians to get across the main road.

for the red light one, OP said that there was no pedestrian traffic
