Mumbai traffic lights stay red when drivers honk

Impatient drivers in Mumbai, India are being encouraged to leave their horns alone with a new type of traffic light that stays red longer when drivers honk. Named the ‘Punishing Signal’, the traffic lights feature a giant screen that reading “honk more, wait more”, along with a decibel meter. If the sound at the intersection reaches 85 decibels or more the red light stays on for another 90 seconds.

Australia's slowest peak-hour commutes revealed

The 15km drive from Sydney’s northern beaches to the CBD is officially the slowest daily peak-hour commute in the country. If you leave Manly at 8am on a Tuesday (which is apparently the worst day of the week), it will take you on average 50 minutes to get to the city. That’s averaging an agonising 18km/h. The data was collected by Intelematic Australia, a subsidiary of the RACV, which took hundreds of millions of speed readings over a two-year period across Australia’s capital cities.
