Just don't use your car as an excuse. I'm pretty sure Hybrids aren't the only ones that waste gas/energy doing a stop/go like that.Kind of why I said it depends on conditions. But yeah F me using common sense and stuff
On the metered ramps with HOV lanes, I will see people who are driving alone move into the HOV lane to bypass the light. Especially when there's a line waiting at the light.What's the penalty for running red in the jurisdiction? Here it carries possible insurance rate increases.
I know they’re supposed to “meter” traffic but all I see is something that slows me down when I’m supposed to be getting up to merging speed.
Those metering lamps are only meant to be used when the traffic volume is approaching capacity anyhow, and around here, that means when those metering lamps are in use, you'll only have to accelerate to maybe 50 or 60 km/h if you're lucky ... probably more like 30 with stop and go conditions.We don’t have metering signal for on-ramps here (Nuevo México), but I understand their purpose. The disadvantage that immediately comes to mind is large trucks and buses, which accelerate slowly from a full stop.
