    Follow the traffic rules. Problem is they are not enforced so nobody does because this is no-accountability land in the eyes of many.

      No ppl need to learn how to drive and the traffic will flow better. Tell me why on earth someone turning right by RedCross is waiting for the green arrow. Once there are no vehicles the individual can go. You can also turn on left on the red. There is no sign that says No Left Turn On Red.

    It is as simple as that. This has nothing to do with whether one has gotten use to lights being there or not. The fact is, a driver should be driving in the present, with full awareness. When is all this lawlessness going to stop?
