• If you got offered $1,000,000 but it meant that every traffic light you
approach will be red, would you take it? Why or why not?

If you charge by the minute, you could actually use it to make extra money as a taxi driver.
So anyway, I started Driving

    • A million and red lights for the rest of your life? Doesn't sound worth it, really.

    • Did the math. Hypothetically, if you spent 7 minutes every single day waiting in a red light, it would cost you just over 42 hours per year, which is 106.5 days over 60 years. That means you’re paid $9,389 for each day of waiting, or $391.25/hour of waiting at red lights. So definitely worth it.

    • Shit dude, it says we hit every light red, it doesn't say it turns red on approach so I mean on average youd probably lose like 15 seconds per light which I mean if you hit red lights as much as I do its a win. Also I mean right on reds exist

    • Use some of it to buy the first car with 100% autopilot. Then red lights won't matter as much and you can ALSO use it to taxi on its own while you're not using it.

    • Assuming theyre all rigged to immediately turn red when you approach it, even after just turning green for the people that were already up front, that means you can file lawsuits against numerous cities because if I remember right, federally there needs to be a 4 second transition from green to red.
