I've about had it with those stupid intersections around here. Most
have reasonable timing, but some don't. This is the big, empty Mojave
Desert, and we do have SURFACE streets with speed limits of 60 and
even 65 mph here (granted, the 65 mph highway is US 395 coming out of
this area into the middle of nowhere, but it's still a 65 mph,
*two-lane* highway). There are certain intersections where, if I see
the light turn yellow, I only have a few seconds to slam on my
brakes. Disgusting. - Apple Valley, CA - - 888.480.4NET (4638)
