Why do we need a warning the light is going to change from green to amber? I mean to say the whole idea of amber is the warning the light is going to change, that should be sufficient. I reckon with the mentality of Australians behind the wheel the blinking green will be just another thing to make them try and rush through rather than head and stop.

To be honest I don’t even see why we need an Amber light. Replace it with red and green only, and red flashes before going solid red. Take the ability for people to judge “oh the yellow will last this long, I’m fine” out of it.

I’m no expert in psychology, but won’t people just disregard the flashing red light as much as they currently do the amber?

Wouldn’t it be easiest (and a stupidity tax to boot!) to just install red light and speed cameras at all light-controlled intersections from all approaches?

Imagine how quickly we could pay for light rail then!
