So I was getting very excited about being able to accomplish my first task of the LGRAB Summer Games, when I saw a cyclist approaching the red traffic light with me, I smiled, turned to say ‘hello!’ and whooosh off he went jumping the lights 😦
Oh dear! A missed chance for me, but a silly thing to do for him, I hope he was safe throughout his journey.
I don’t understand who jumps the lights, not only is very veeeeeeery unsafe, not least because often ambulances and police cars need to go through red lights (at high speed) when answering emergencies (so you seriously risk your life!), but in urban settings you have one traffic light after another, so you aren’t going to save much time… and to top it off it really cheeses drivers off, rightly so actually…
Anyhow, perhaps next time I’ll be more lucky and manage to exchange a brief hello when I won’t be the only one waiting for the red light to turn green.
