Charlotte's city leaders in another amazing example of brilliance have been replacing green lights with "Yellow Flashing Arrows" at intersections that have left turn protected/permissive settings.
The flashing "Yellow Arrow" means it is OK to turn left just use caution. But to Charlotte's seniors its an accident bound to happen.
Carmel and Colony got the "upgrade" a few months ago but the Sunday Church crowd hasn't quite figured it out yet.
You see, older folks who are pretty much set in their ways see the yellow light suddenly appear and lock up the binders, as one did last Sunday, causing yours truly to nearly eat the ass end of a big old Buick.
I had to take a deep breath and remind myself that the sudden break check was sent my way by someones grandmother. A smile and a wave is all they got from Cedar Posts.
Other cities have taken to YouTube to explain the change but Charlotte's geniuses have decided an informational graphic is "good enough". The City of Charlotte Graphic is here.
Just goes to show you "new and improved" is not necessarily better.
