    Nothing - nothing = no bike
    arrow + Triangle = bike that only turns right

    Fair deal!

    I would just take my chances and cross. Or die.
    Or I could follow whoever crosses the street on my end.

    "They even have traffic signals for queers?"

    I`d rather be a healthy queer, as apposed to fat-ass republican.

    Use derogatory words like that again, and you`re not likely to make it to 1200.

    I think the double signals on those two lights are just to warn you that it`s about to let you go, so you have time to put down your burrito. The middle two traffic lights are probably for buses or something.

    Although that doesn`t explain why the cars can turn right when the buses can go and the bike is about to go straight...

    Personally, I`m not in favor of gays. Blame small town upbringing, Christian education, strict parents, whatever the reason, I (personally) think its morally wrong. BUT I`ve had 3 or 4 gay friends and they were alright guys. Same as affairs, but I`ve been there too. Makes no sense but what in life does?

    BUT our `official` responsibility is not always our personal values. No gay kid in any class I ever taught was victimized for it. Maybe I was even MORE protective because I was aware of my own personal attitudes. But the simple fact is, anyone uses words like the one used, I will come down on them like a ton of bricks, same as if they were slinging poo at jews, blacks, or Poles.

    (Certain English-Dutch-Canadian-Irishmen are excepted from my care though, you can `go for it` with them)

    For all the f_ckhead drivers I encounter daily, they could never install one of those in my neighborhood. Ours only have a red, a green, and a yellow (and sometimes those of an arrow persuasion); the motorists here apparently favor throwing their hands over their eyes in a "f_ck it" fashion as they approach them, rather than trying to recall those traffic pesky laws.

    These are normal Street signs here in Switzerland. The (-) and the triangles are our tram-signs ;) Also you can turn right any time but can`t go straight or left. err...

    Who needs lights? Do what I did in Korea:

    Run like hell while screaming across the street and pray that you don`t get killed by a rickshaw, insane person on a bike, a sword wielding samurai ninja person, Daewoo OR all the above. Worked for me!

    There are LIGHTS at the magic roundabout. I only went round it twice- with different drivers, both of them looked baffled for a moment and then just drove in a straight line to where they were going.
