Default Re: GreenLight: Reduce traffic jams by eliminating 'right turns' at signals

Yes, it is a great idea and have seen this implemented in Noida at many places. But the only problem is availability of wide roads to provide for the C-turns, which is rarely available.

Implementation of this is difficult, but still is a brilliant idea.

Warm Regards
Yeah the Biggest problem in this implementation is the mentality of drivers in India. When it comes to the C Turn, everyone will try to flog to the first one and eventually obstruct the traffic that would get the green signal.

------------------------------------------------------

-------------------1st C Turn---------------------
<---------------------------- incomming traffic

This might work in countries like USA where people tend to be sensible behind the wheel. I seriously believe that the driving test in India should really test the driving sense of people behind the wheel.

Then you have not driven in old British cities. Side and linking Roads are narrow but the one way system sees to it that enough room is left for vehicles to pass, and of course far better discipline all round.
