Roxanne...



I can barely find words to convey my utter elation when almost every night this week, having left work long after everyone else had gone home (and probably gone to bed for that matter), I find myself sitting in my car on a deserted road, in a town I don't particularly like, watching the rain pouring down around me and waiting for every successive set of traffic lights to change from red whilst absolutely fuck all passes in the other direction...

Late at night, the mutant traffic lights creep out, the ones who delight in delaying vehicles and pedestrians for as long as possible. Their objective? Inscrutable, like all aliens.

I find that if you creep through ever so slowly, with your fingers crossed and the car stereo muted...you might just get away with it. Or so I've heard.
Alternatively, pretend you are invisible...

This side of the pond you can buy a remote control that can override the traffic lights so you have green all the way. Of course this is completely illegal and is supposed to be for the emergency services only - but it would be great to have as a standard car accessory.

If everyone thought like Pete Frenzy, we would live in a world of total anarchy.

And if you decide to creep through the lights because you know no one else is mad enough to be driving around there at that time of night (why do they even drive there during the day?), you know there will be a hidden camera, ready to make a profit from your impatience. (Actually, I don't think the cameras are allowed to keep the money themselves.)
