Since you brought the subject up! :-? 8)

Are traffic lights 'tweakable' for the purposes of controlling road speed or should they be used solely for controlling the direction and flow of traffic?

Our access road has more speed humps/speed cushions on it than any other road in Halton - AND they're also using traffic lights to slow the traffic down - and they're sited not 30m away from the nearest speed cushions. AAAAaaarghhh!!!! :evil:

I hate the traffic lights where I live, even if your the only car at the cross roads you still have to wait ages for it to go through each one before it comes to you, I blame this on you billy.

Councils eh? :roll: We work in partnership with the police to make sure their Traffic Plods can keep their figures up and ‘Do’ drivers going 2mph over etc. :( It’s handy knowing your way around traffic law though with this job mind ….. I’ve managed to weedle out of loads of parking tickets cos there’s been something wrong with the parking over the past couple of years.

As far as the more technical question from Sisyphus: It's bad practise to control speed by traffic lights but not unusual (cos it's a cheaper option) No more technical questions please......my brain hurts....

Trouble is the toe-rags are doing both! :evil: And as well as speed humps, speed cushions and 'incorrectly' phased traffic lights they've put in 'pedestrian crossing points' which have ramps a Challenger MBT would have trouble getting over.

Because they're not zebra crossings cars rarely stop for pedestrians - and when they do the cars coming the other way usually don't!! :o

They cause more 'near-misses' than I've seen at any other point where pedestrians and traffic 'mingle' :roll: :(

*kicks Billy*

You're the reason we had to buy a 4x4 then I assume? Stupid sodding Sleeping Plods (speed bumps)

They're so big aswell, why cant you make ghandi humps? They'd be so much better.

The job you get after your military career in entirely up to you, depending what qualications you gain within the military or had before e.g. NVQ'S, GCSE'S or equivs, so the job you get after is not neccecaryly going to be a security job or being redundant.

Funny you should say that. During the Falklands a man from South Africa approached a mate of mine on 2 Sqn RAF Regt. Well my mate and two others from 2 Sqn accepted the job offer. And I was also asked but declined...I already felt civvy street calling.
