Friday 10th of June was a adventfull night [1] 5pm on Karangahape Road a black sports looking car went through a electronic crossing while the pedestrians had right of way, part way between the motorway bridge (Day street) & East Street. Thank the Lord nobody was on the crossing. [2] 7pm a car came out of Bassett Road and turned left into Remuera Road, just after the lights had gone red and Remuera had the green lights. Thank the Lord Remuera traffic was not quick off the mark. [3] So when I got to Remuera Road & Garden Road - Norana Avenue intersection some minutes later and saw all the red pedestrians indicators were on, I thought someone had pressed the button and run away. I waited for a complete traffic cycle and no green pedestrians indicator, so then thinking faulty pedestrian crossing. So I cross Garden Road with discretion and caution then Remuera Road a few metres away from that intersection, on the way back thinking that intersection is faulty cross Remuera Road at the Clonbern Road intersection when I got to Garden Road I push the button just to see what would happen, but cross the road anyway when get to the other side look back at the hopeless system and see there is a light going at the switch and hear the buzz not long latter. Then the penny drops ~ I have just been screwed by “idiots in the system”. What is the point of having red indicators going almost 24-7 wasting power and not only that, having money wasted on installing a stupid light on every switch at that intersection, which I might add is not clear to see in darkness when this type of system is not a common type of system around Auckland city, in fact if I have seen this system used before it is so long I can not remember when. THE CITY IS RIDDLED WITH MISSING BUTTONS, SO YOU HAVE TO WASTE YOUR LIFE WAITING AND WE HAVE TO CROSS THREE DAM ROADS WHEN YOU ONLY WANTED TO CROSS JUST THE ONE ROAD. WHAT IS THE B POINT IN WANTING TO USE ANY ELECTRONIC CROSSING? what is the B point on wasting money on installing a light at every switch when you are too lazy tight to install all the switches at every intersection? People in the system need to ask their doctor for the correct medication so they can think logical. From Eric
