Over at, they have a some information from the Denver area papers that show that increasing yellow-light times decreases red-light violations -- and probably, therefore, safety.

Hmmmm... But it would probably drastically reduce the amount of $s that they get in "red-light camera" ticket payments.

Turns out, by my measurement, that Denver yellow lights are some of the shortest in the nation. You literally cannot stop in time except on a dry, clean road. The coefficient of friction is too low on all but the best tires.

(you also cannot get across if you're on foot or on a bike without a bit of terror and/or running)

Minnesota's are much better, hence we don't flinch before hitting the gas at a green light. At least until we arrive in Colorado to ski! :^)

So, you've taken a break from blogging and are going to come out here and ski?

Have your girls had a chance to try it before out in the flat(-tish) lands?

Found work yet?
