Traffic lights upgrade?

Guess what? We are getting a new type of crossing that has sensors on to tell if pedestrians have made it to the kerb. This will give people more time to cross!! They are going to call this "new" crossing a- Puffin Crossing!!! lol

The date on the top of my newspaper says 9th of May 2014. Yet I'm sure Puffin's were actually first introduced about 15 years ago!

Anyway the article goes on--
"Transport minister Robert Goodwill said they will "begin" to replace pelican crossings from...... next year. (2015) The updated crossing have movement detectors which allow extra time"


So am I missing something? My local town already has about 8 Puffin, 8 zebras and only 1 pelican remains. Pelicans will be phased out and this phasing out will start next year????


In other news- The first car has just been invented! Transport minister Robert Goodwill said "The car will gradually be phased in during 2015 and this new form of transport will gradually replace horse and cart"......... cool

Re: Traffic lights upgrade?

Green men don't flash on puffin crossings. They stay lit for 4 seconds then the red man lights up again.

He we go again. Cow Towing to cyclists. Why can't they get off their bike and walk across Zebra crossings??? Why have to have different road markings so that they can continue to pedal across walkways alongside pedestrians?

It was all over God morning Britain on Friday.
It was getting annoying as they kept saying it's new technology.

Re: Traffic lights upgrade?

Must have been a slow news day.  Thought I was in the same time-warp.
"New" puffins started in 1992, I believe, but there was no public information campaign at that time so they are catching up.
