Notice Anything - Revealed

By
November 6th, 2013



Nevah ceases to amaze me how you can have a hundred people - ok, da seventeen who read WWD! 😆 - view one picture and very well have nearly a hundred different points of view. Well, at least many differing - and agreeing - things to point out.

Da pic I was asking if anybody noticed yesterday.........









And da MANY responses: 😆 Yes, sadly, I'm being sarcastic. 😆

😎 Good Afternoon Everyone!!! 😎

... 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.

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 ...





Here are a couple more pics to look at and see if you notice anything else?

Just to give you time to tink about it. 😉

All you buggahs wen notice da green arrow in da first pic...... but I nevah notice dat until aftah it was pointed out by De. Mahalos! 😀

Wat I noticed was dat da traffic light isn't just da light by itself any more but now has a ginormous black border around it. If you're able to, you can see dat da "frame" was added to da light more clearly from behind and I tink it's pretty huge compared to da "normal" frames around da oddah traffic lights. Funny thing is, I've only seen it on Ala Moana Blvd from Punchbowl St. to Atkinson.

Wassup Wit Dat!

I nevah seen it anywea else - although I'm a habitual drivah so I don't drive to different areas much - and it only caught my eye cause it reminded me of mainland traffic lights. It's actually kinda "ugly" but da only thing I can imagine da purpose to be is dat Ala Moana Blvd must be sunnier than any oddah road **yes, Korean sarcasm** cause it does make da traffic lights easier to see.... but then again in dat stretch there must be like two dozen traffic lights so you ain't getting too far before you have to stop anyways.

In any case..... did you notice dat?
