Traffic Light Demolition

June 21, 2009

That when you’re driving down the road on a particularly windy day, the traffic light at an intersection snaps loose from the supporting cables and rockets Earthward just as you are rolling serenely beneath it.

The resulting carnage – because you’re probably on a scooter or in a gas-efficient tiny SmartCar – is an unrecognizable mess of metal and blood. All intermingled with the fancy yellow paint from the side of the traffic light.
