    :cool: Good Afternoon Everyone!!! :cool:

    ... hey Braddah Lance ... i don't think it's the different styles of green light ... is it??? ... because I've seen that all over the place ...

    ... maybe the old style street lights??? ... I think I remember Mayor Harris (?) or maybe Mufi was trying to give Honolulu that retro feel ...

    ... or the BEEG street signs for the cross streets??? ... but I think those are everywhere too ...

    Usually when there is an arrow green light, that means that you can only go in the direction of the arrow. When the light is a round green, that means you can go straight or turn. In this case, the left side can only go straight (because there is a left turn arrow for the left turn only lane), but the right side can either go straight to turn right - into Ala Moana Park. NOTE* This is NOT always the case - but usually is true.

    @Uncle Rodney. Right on da kinipopo as to the law regarding the signal light indication..

    Howzit BL. I agree with Uncle Rodney. Looks weird at first but makes sense. Also, wen (and if) that left lane gets converted to go da addoh way, during rush hour, the light can show red for dat lane only. Combine that with red cones, you get exshtra lane going da way you need relief. I must admit, I hate it wen I no can make left turns on (Ewa bound) Kapiolani during rush hour...

    @Uncle Rodney: ... you're right about the arrow green light control ... but that's standard traffic signals used everywhere ...

    ... I think the extra signal light configuration on Nimitz is weird ... used for contra-flow ... but the lights are still on without contra-flow and I notice the lights on the opposite direction lanes ...
