Why is the green light on top?
@Nathan, where is it located in your country...?
@meowarina, green is on bottom in UK
@meowarina, call me crazy, but isn't green on bottom in the US too?
@bennihana121, to be totally honest, I havent driven in over a year and havent paid attention while a passenger. It sounds silly but I honestly cant remember. Im pretty sure green is on top though
@bennihana121, google confirms red is on top lol
@meowarina, a lot of Canadian stop lights are sideways
@Random Canadian, weird shjt happens in the maple syrup land.
@meowarina, yeah.. It's on top
@meowarina, green is on the bottom so when you are the first car in line at the intersection you can still see it when it lights up. Depending on your vehicle type or height, you can't always see the top of the traffic light from the first spot in line.
@Random Canadian, not in Ontario. Which part do you live in?
@CosLaw, I've lived in Calgary and Halifax and both cities have a ton of sideways stop lights
@meowarina, everywhere I've been in the US had green on top
@Twonkle Donkey, I just havent driven in a long time guys im sorry D=
@Random Canadian, oh alright. Never been to either of those places. :p
@Twonkle Donkey, the US used to have sideways lights but decided to orient them all in one direction for color blind people
Where I live (Detroit) it's safer to risk getting broadsided or a ticket for blowing the light than to actually stop, where the possibility of getting car jacked while stopped is extremely high.
@Mama Dooose, I don't know if you're just trying to be funny or if you live in the worst part of Detroit, but I drive in Detroit often and I can confirm that your statement I false.
@revoD neB, yes, I LIVE in Detroit. Not just often but everyday. Not sure if you're in the downtown area driving or what but three people were car jacked just last month in my neighborhood at stop lights. So depending on where you drive, my statement is not false.
@Mama Dooose, yea I usually drive by the comerics building / GM building, i drive north of those too, so it's not a very bad area. I have heard of a couple people getting car jacked trying to help a woman in distress on the road. It's news to me that it happens at stop lights though. (Sorry for bad grammar)
@revoD neB, rule of thumb is always stop a few car lengths behind the person in front of you if they happen to stop, that way you can easily pull off if someone tries anything. But most of the lights around me (Islandveiw neighborhood) have either been shot out, are always blinking yellow or the copper had been stolen from the poles rendering them useless. And the stop signs are either ignored, have fallen (or been knocked) down, or scrappers got to them. I figure if I stay where the white folks usually are (like where you drive) then I'll be safe! You drive the hoity-toity areas!
Since I'm color blind I'm aloud to go when ever I want. It's in the constitution
@MathematicalGangsta, yeah but arrrr "allowed" to go
Must be a Yorker.
@Pretty Sweet , being a yorker this is rather accurate
@Spikeup12, Being a Californian I am surprised that i was accurate
@Pretty Sweet , i do it every now and then but you REALLY have to look out for jersey they all drive like a$$holes
@Pretty Sweet , because New York is a country
@Adr3nalinexx, yeah i meant like in 'murica
This guy hasn't been anywhere else but his country apparently.
Green means go, yellow means speed up, red means pray that there were no cameras
In my country, if you have a motorcycle, you can go between the cars during traffic and its legal
@High Summoner Braska, I live in the US and that is the way it is here as well.
@hungry hypocrite, not here in florida
@The Pun Enthusiast , to be honest, I was hoping somebody would do that.
@MingeMister, in Paris , this is just a decoration
Am I the only that kinda doesn't like the yellow light?
Everywhere else vs. Massachusetts
@meowarina it's on the bottom in the US....that's how I've always seen it and I've been to most states.
Well in California you're allowed to if you're turning right, not sure about other places.

Yellow doesn't mean go lol. It means to stop if you aren't already past the light, or to keep going if you are.
@Ray Narvaez Jr, Not in California. Yellow means go if you're going the speed limit.
That... Is why we have accidents
That awkward moment when you thought you got away with running a red, and a flash goes off...
