    If by sidways, you mean that the red, yellow, and green lights are mounted side by side, this is normal in Saskatchewan as well.

    First time I came across this was in Switzerland. Spain has a strange arrangement. Coming into a town there is a traffic light which changes to red if you are exceeding the speed limit. Trouble is, it picks up your speed long before you get to the speed change and changes to red anyway. Never did figure a way round it. I just got used to the idea that I would be stopping for a few seconds every time I hit a town.

    If you can stay calm while all around you is chaos then you probably haven't understood the seriousness of the situation

    Johnny Cash is not off topic to a trucker.
