Question Stop Lights vs. Red Lights

I was just posting in another thread and thought of something that I felt was deserving of its own thread. Of course, it really probably isn't... but anyway...

When I refer to a stop light, I usually call it a red light (I'm from AL, can't help it). I had a friend that used to always give me hell about it, saying that they are "stop lights". His reasoning was that they're not always red, which makes sense.

BUT... they're not always stop lights either. After all, some times they are "go lights" and "caution lights".

So what should we call them??? Traffic lights??? That just sounds really gay for some reason.

So my question is.... What do you call them?

This is easily the single most worthless thing I think I have ever posted... and to think... I could be studying for finals...

Re: Stop Lights vs. Red Lights

Traffic lights would be more appropriate than any of the others

More appropriate... yes. But is that what you actually call it?

BTW, print those notes out for me...

I'm missing between exception handlers and the display method for implementing the scoping rule.

red lights, although traffic lights would be more appropriate.

But they are still red lights.

Red Lights

I told someone to turn right at the red light and he missed the turn because he was actually looking for a red light

Re: Stop Lights vs. Red Lights

the light :dunno:

you can:
turn at "the light"
stop at "the light"
go at "the light"
slow down at "the light"
make a first left after "the light"
etc...

stoplight is also ok, because technically if it wasnt there, youd just keep going. since its there, you now must stop if it tells you. its there for stopping and controlling traffic. so traffic light is ok as well, but too long to say in casual convo.

Re: Stop Lights vs. Red Lights

People north of Illinois call them "Stop and Go"

Red lights are what you see behind you when you don't stop for the stop light.....

nope.. we definitely call them yellow. some people say its an orange light whenever its yellow and it turns red when your halfway through the intersection. maybe he is implying he never stops stops for yellow?
