We met with a traffic big-wig at Locke and York a couple years ago to ask for longer pedestrian crossing 6 lanes of York. The city traffic guy almost threw a fit and said "if we add 20 seconds here, it means we have to adjust ALL 30,000 signals in the city!!".

The rest of us instinctively started laughing. I wanted to pin a medal on the guy for saying something so stupid with a straight face and lots of passion. Needless to say we didn't really get much headway with our ideas.

Last update from McHattie was that the city was willing to add 2-3 seconds to the light.
