Try a black shirt or cloth onto your dashboard next time to cut down on the reflection and glare.

Horizontal traffic lights are not that uncommon anymore. They are rapidly overtaking most signal assemblies in Florida due to their better wind resistance. They also are in Atlantic City, NJ (at least they were in the 1990s).

Cool pix  :cool:

Horizontal signals are used very rapidly now. They are mostly used next to bridges where traffic coming from under the bridge can see the whole signal.

Horizontal signals can be used on span wires with the right type of pipes/brackets BTW.

Actually they are used all over Nebraska with the exception of the city of Omaha, span wire assemblies, sign-bridge type assemblies for SPUI's (http://maps.google.com/maps?hl=en&ie=UTF8&ll=40.802765,-96.744533&spn=0,359.978027&z=16&layer=c&cbll=40.802794,-96.744411&panoid=JfeOWggf_G6M7b4UWJ-nEg&cbp=12,226.90507257190674,,0,0.5175781249999977), and at the I-80/US 81 interchange.
