Just ruminating
6/29/2011 7:03:17 AM    [ Flag as Inappropriate ]

I was trying to think of ways to reduce the U.S. National and local deficits, and I've come up with a couple of suggestions.

The first would save money across the country in the forms of decreased labor expenditure, and less paint and metal purchases. This would be to eliminate all "Yield" signs. Nobody pays any attention to them, so why have them?

Yield signs were doomed from the beginning, anyway. I don't know why they were ever implemented. It's un-American to yield. To be American is to believe that whatever one is doing is more important than what anyone else out there is doing, and that everyone else ought to get out of their way.

And what about flashing red lights at four-way stops? What were they thinking there? Here's a double-expense whammy four stop signs AND a flashing light. And anyone who thought about it a little beforehand should have realized that a four-way stop is an accident waiting to happen. Any time you let a person make up his or her own mind when they should go, you're asking for trouble. Besides, just when you get going good, the light flashes red again. It's a wonder anyone gets anywhere.

Why not just get rid of the stop signs and put up a regular traffic light? You're already wasting the electricity, and even if a person is color-blind, they know what the top, middle and bottom lights mean, so there are no dangerous subjective decisions to make. Red, you stop; green, you go; and yellow, look the hell out!

Just a couple of ideas to make life go a little smoother and cheaper. I don't know why nobody's thought about them before.
