So... what happened is that the length of time from green to yellow to red was cut. If you were going the speed limit and the light turned yellow you had to slam on the brakes or risk going through a quick red light. Of course, slamming on the brakes increased the risk of being rear-ended. So, sometimes going through the yellow/red was the least risky choice.
I was lucky enough not to have gotten a ticket. More sudden stops than I liked though.

Walt is right on.

In Philly if you get stuck in an intersection and they take your photo. The fine is huge. They do this in other cities too where I have been but I don't remember where I have been and my son Tommy is not here to provide in conversation support.

Sure---I know where I am. And if I look at my notes, the GPS, my Smartphone and Google maps I know where I am going. I just don't remember where I have been.

The same could be said for many of us in TV!

I know where I am, but sometimes I forget why I went there.

That's why it's important to take good notes. Today I arrived at Fresh Market. I looked at my notes and it said "Ground Beef---$2.99 a pound."

A creepy song in 1968 is an oxymoron.
