Lights out

Vancouver – Robson Street

Originally uploaded by Waqas Ahmed.

If you’ve been wanting to get into a car accident there are a number of traffic lights on Robson Street are currently not working and the Vancouver Police Department have not yet shown up wearing their white butler gloves to direct traffic, so this is an excellent time.

This could be especially useful if you’re wanting to get ICBC to buy you a new car.

It appears though that someone knew that this was going to happen because there’s temporary stop signs at Robson and Seymour. Stop signs which none of the traffic going down Robson is paying attention to much to the amusment of the traffic trying to transverse Seymour.

I’m hoping for violence, it’ll make the work day go so much quicker.

Update: As of about 2:30 in the afternoon the lights were back to fully operational. There were, at least at my little corner of Robson and Seymour, no accidents.

    I recently saw lights that were completely out and not flashing red or amber, I thought that was the default thing and if something was wrong that’s what they would do. It was very scary the traffic going both ways assumed they could just go. Eek.
