It can be very easy to imagine what a disaster the roads would be if we didn’t have the basic traffic signs and especially, the lights in place. Without these traffic lights and signs travelling on the road could easily turn into a huge mess, as we just wouldn’t know where to go and where to stop and where to drive fast or slow. Without traffic rules and signs in place, everyone would go wherever they please, and what is very likely to happen is that there would be a huge mess on the streets within seconds. There is a huge number of cars on the streets nowadays. Almost everyone that we know has at least one car, and very often, people have more than one. This is a huge contrast to how things were once upon a time, many years ago, when only a few people had cars, or even further back when cars were not even a thing. Back in those days traveling on the roads would have been so much easier and less complicated, without a doubt. Most people commuted on foot, and you can really walk anywhere you like. Now, however, we need to be super careful about where we drive and where we don’t, and even how fast we drive, or we could end up with a hefty ticket!
While traffic laws are things that any driver needs to remember at all times, traffic signs and lights are what serve as a physical reminder to all the drivers about what they need to do and what they can’t do. There are so many traffic signs out there, such as signs showing us the speed limits, traffic signs that tell us when we need to stop or where we need to go slow, or when we can speed up and so on and so forth. These signs can clearly outline areas where we can park and areas which are reserved for either VIP’s or the disabled or the elderly. While all of these signs have their own importance in ensuring road safety, the most important of them all is perhaps the traffic light. The traffic lights are absolutely essential at any road juncture or crossing, as they effectively control the flow of traffic. Without traffic lights, not only could the roads turn into a clogged mess of cars in seconds, but accidents could be very likely.
A very high percentage of traffic accidents are caused by people violating traffic lights. This causes them to drive right into flowing traffic, which has disastrous consequences not just for their own safety, but for someone who was following the traffic laws and was driving safely as well. This is why we can see traffic lights at almost every juncture and crossing, telling people to drive and pause turn by turn so that everything is flowing, and so that every driver on the road is safe. One place where traffic lights aren’t available is during construction or road work. In these situations it is perhaps even more necessary to have traffic lights around as there is a lot of heavy machinery going around, and workers can be all over the place. Therefore, in these places it is important to have traffic light hire.
