Just a question, in my country we don't have numbers next to the small people, what are they used for? (IMG:../forums/style_emoticons/default/huh.gif)


If really serious here is answer:
Green 80: you have 80 seconds to cross the street
Red 50: dont try to cross street, be patient and wait 50 seconds.

In Turkiye, we have these numerator signs, but rarely for people on foot (People on foot here cant be lazy enough to look the street, punishment would be severe (IMG:../forums/style_emoticons/default/cool.gif) ), very mostly for cars (IMG:../forums/style_emoticons/default/smile.gif) . I believe red 50 have a hypnotic effect on impatient people so they involve with counting numbers than going early (IMG:../forums/style_emoticons/default/smile.gif) (I personally observed that hypnotic effect with my very impatient cousen who mostly pass car with red sign.)

NIce idea to give times.
Though i like the japanese version better.
It doesn't show numbers, it beeps. And while time is running out, it beeps faster and faster.
Seems very strange at first. But after a few days, you have the timing down flat and it feels very natural.

Red light, Green light:
This is no joke, it's reality:

As maybe I sometimes mentioned, I spent several months with a project in Rio.

And during darkness in some districts car driving (or better waiting at a traffic light) can be dangerous there.
Therefore after 9 or 10 o'clock in the evening, taxi drivers are allowed to pass a red traffic light.

One evening, when a taxi brought me from the customer to my hotel, at a GREEN traffic light the taxi driver slowed down. I asked him for the 'Why' and he told me that he never is true whether a collegue is coming from the 'RED' line.

Perhaps in the forum there is a real Carioca who can confirm that.

If I was there, I could not decide what is more dangerous, passing the red light or waiting for armed criminals... such things make me feel happy for living in the old continent.

If everybody thinks in this way, I'm sure that currently nobody can reevent the wheel (because we do not have it yet ...)!

The real question is: "Is it allowed or is it practiced?"
Too us Germans both are the same, but we're clearly the minor-minority in this case! (IMG:../forums/style_emoticons/default/laugh.gif)

Peter you butcher up your english again. (IMG:../forums/style_emoticons/default/wink.gif)
I guess reevent should be reinvent, but if something does not exist yet, one can only invent it, but never re-invent it.

For those about to invent technology, viva their courage (IMG:../forums/style_emoticons/default/hi.gif) . Regarding my role in human's history, eh man, I am not to be famous for something. So, I am a simple guy who likes girls, clubbing, drinking, rocking, in other words "life" (IMG:../forums/style_emoticons/default/showoff.gif) , but I don't endanger my life for nothing (IMG:../forums/style_emoticons/default/stretcher.gif) . I am only an agronomist, neither prometheus, nor aristarchus, nor marco polo.
