A Limerick A Day

at

A shared space junction in Coventry, England

Let’s consider, just briefly, the sight
Of a crossroads without a red light
Would harmony reign?
Or must I explain
This is Ireland? It would turn to shite.

    Paddywackery? really broadsheet? People drive good/bad the world over. When lights go down on a storm or the guards get the blue flu, traffic always moves better. The thing is, the powers that be are getting paid of every new set of traffic lights in this country and its getting worse. Its corruption plain and simple. We don’t need half the lights in this country.

    The lights have been out at a big junction near me a few times over the last 6 months and, more often than not, it runs perfectly smoothly. Basically, everyone treats it like a four-way stop in the States. I don’t know whether it’s an accident of the time that I’m passing it, but whenever the lights have been out, there’s never been any lines of traffic waiting to get through them which there usually is, no matter what time of week it is.

    The lights often break down at the bottom of main street in Castlebar and the traffic flows so well when it does.
    Wouldn’t work at every junction mind.
