I like how the CoV pretends they have a timing system for traffic lights....they clearly don't.

Actually they sort of do for some stretches of road...at least for a while after they get reset.  But then over the following months the lights slowly go out of synch until eventually it's almost random.


The lights on Pandora from Cook to the water were synched quite well for about 40-45 kmh when the bike lane opened (provided there wasn't much traffic), but that's not so much the case now that some time has passed and tiny timing differences have added up to throwing them out of synch.

Interesting.  I haven't observed the 'clock drift' issue myself, but then again I've been taking a different route to work due to the condition of Quadra street lately.  Bodes well for the accuracy of the proposed automated enforcement on the Malahat...

The city has undertaken a traffic light study, no?

Know it all.
