Cycling in Sydney Australia
Nice idea. I would be concerned about people with colour-blindness, especially red-green confusion which is very common. I think that these people just rely on the order of the lights rather than the colour.
Yes, that would be the main problem.
Good in pubs, orange means its your turn to buy the drinks ;)
Saw count down signals in Moscow. 3 minutes was the standard time for pedestrians to wait. Amazingly the drivers all stopped, which was just as well because to cross the 8 lane streets otherwise was impossible.
Could give this a trial at Murray St. Was watching from the pub on corner. Never seen so many glum, bored or annoyed faces waiting for the interminable traffic phases to get round to allowing peds to cross. i think it was only 2 minutes to wait but it seemed much longer. Cyclists got all of 6 seconds, peds slightly longer.
Still have them, even have them on Phuket now.
I think the point is that it is just a single unit and the array changes pattern & colour. Stacking three of them would defeat the purpose of the neat design.
If you had a count down, would you need an orange light?
The orange light tells you that the light will soon go red. So if you have a count down telling you that, what would be the purpose of the orange?
