What did your state driver's manual say about how to request a green light from a demand-actuated intersection?.

Tribalism will get you nowhere. Oddly enough, CF seems to suffer from -too much- faith in the government. The idea that politicians are independent entities, only loosely tied to the people and corporations that paid for their campaigns, their re-elections, and their retirements after their term is up is a bit naive. But it's an attractive concept, we all want to have a 'good guy' in Washington, who is going to fix things. But good guys who fix thing don't get money to be reelected, and are quickly replaced by those who will play ball.
