LED traffic signal lamps last longer, save money in Hampton Roads cities

Dec 17, 2013 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: Hampton Roads Daily Press

Not long ago, if you opened the red, yellow or green lens of a traffic signal light in Newport News or Hampton , you would find a 135-watt incandescent bulb, like one you might use at home, set in a bowl-shaped reflector.

Still kind of cranky that real estate taxes went up by ~20% this year...
So when city officials talk about saving taxpayer money.., not sure how that computes...

Just buy 'photo blocker/clear and spray both plates' or use plastic and/or tinted plate covers.
This is not so you can hop lights but to fight the no due process of corruption.

The Virginia Constitution requires 'Due Process' Red light tickets sent in the mail provides NO Due Process. Unconstitutional.

I seldom drive on the Peninsula, but had to recently - driving westbound - on Jefferson (west of Rich Neck Rd) in mid-morning.

I had a horrible time telling if the light was red, yellow or green! I thought it was the way the sun was shining on it!
I was afraid I'd be hit from behind (if no one else was slowing or stopping)- or from the side if 'my' light was red!!
I've never had that much trouble at traffic lights anywhere else!
I hope they get rid of those type of lights!

Virginia code requires 'due process.' The red lights are 100% unconstitutional as also stated in the U.S. Constitution.
