thirty traffic signals, twenty of them red

Toronto, 2013.06.03

This morning I had one of those days. All three of the first traffic lights I approached turned red on me as I rolled up. Then it happened at the next two as well. So I started tracking my record as I went.

It turns out that in the ~11 kilometers on my route, there are fully thirty traffic signals.

And today, I was stopped by twenty of them changing in front of me.

Happily, the rest of the day went more smoothly (it would have to!)

Three good things that happened today:

  1. I may have been stopped at a whole bunch of red lights, but at least it wasn't raining. In fact it was a really pleasant 10°C and sunny.
  2. And I didn't get a flat tire.
  3. And I still got to work on time.
