Dancing Traffic Light Saves Lives
I admit that I can sometimes be impatient. I’m not real good at waiting in lines, waiting on hold on the phone or waiting for traffic lights to turn. And I’m probably not alone.
In fact there’s a company called “Smart” that is doing a test run on traffic lights where they replace the symbol of the orange man in the “don’t walk” display with a man who is dancing. The idea is to get people to wait at the light, rather than try to cross against the light. The hope the result means fewer accidents.
It is kind of entertaining. And it might even convince people like me that it’s OK to stop and 'boogey down' while you wait.
