The Irish traffic light in Syracuse - upside down signal

When the City of Syracuse first started to install traffic signal lights in the 1920’s, they put one at a busy intersection on the hill, the corner of Tompkins Street and Milton Avenue. Some Irish youths, incensed that anyone would dare put the “British” red above the “Irish” green broke the light continually until the city relented and let the green remain on top. Today at the intersection, a ...

Ped Xing Alley

Ped Xing Alley

Within a space of about 1 1/3 miles, there are 10 traffic signals (a combination of actual traffic signals and "Ped Xings") along this stretch of Walker St., all within the city of La Palma, CA, where I grew up. Everything was all fine and dandy until the city started putting up all the ped xings in the mid 90's, and now if you drive anywhere up or down Walker St. in La Palma, you're probably g...

Every few kilometers, a Chinese family witho...

Unusual crossroads at airbase

Unusual crossroads at airbase

This crossroads at Skrydstrup Airbase is maybe the most unusual one in Denmark.

The road north-south is a way for fighters heading the hangars to the north. The road the planes would cross is the main road from Vojens to Ribe.

If you look at the crossing you see the stop line for the planes crossing the road.
