Great thing about Chennai traffic ...

The traffic signals with the countdown clocks are the most beautiful and pleasing sight. The countdown clock for each signal (Red, Amber, green) offers you time to plan what to do.

During a red light, you know whether you have time to check that route map; on a green light, you know whether to start braking a block away -- or to stomp on the accelerator, as though you were an F1 driver.

I've heard that a lot of cities around the world don't even have an inkling about this idea :) Good thing Bangalore and Chennai have this.
