As proof that I can waste time measuring (and then blogging about) pretty well anything, I present the following video of the new traffic lights at the corner of Prince and Grafton Streets. My reasons are just, however: I wanted to get a good idea of just how much time I have to get across the street.
From the beginning of the cycle (which starts 19 seconds in):
- 00:00 — vehicle and pedestrian lights turn green
- 00:06 — flashing pedestrian “red hand” begins
- 00:26 — vehicle lights turn yellow, pedestrian solid red
- 00:30 — vehicle lights turn red
