11, 10, Go!

This is a traffic signal counter.

Traffic counter

Contrary to the practise in most parts of the world, here, you usually tend to fire away from your stationary position at a road junction when the count down reaches 10. That’s right.

And similarly, when you are about drive past a green light and you see you have about 10 seconds left, you have 2 options.

  1. Start applying the brakes, and get hit by the person behind you.
  2. Accelerate harder, and get hit by the person from the perpinducular road who would have already started from his blocks upon seeing the magical number 10.
