Mumbai Police Pranks Drivers Into Honking Less
Honking at a traffic light won’t make the traffic flow quicker, but most of us feel compelled to do it anyway. It makes us feel like we’re being proactive, doing something about the situation. It’s not helping, but at least it can’t possibly make the traffic worse. Well, it turns out that it can. In Mumbai, police have introduced noise-sensitive traffic lights in an effort to cut noise pollution. If cars honk too loudly, the light will remain red for longer.
