AN experiment began in Leicester on Monday with the omission of the red-amber traffic-light signal before the green. It is hoped to reduce the risk of collision which occurs because so many drivers start on the red-amber without waiting for the green. Observations during the next 12 months will be compared with accident and traffic statistics.
The amber-only signal, after green, is retained. Similar experiments are to be held in Wolverhampton, Northampton and Brighton and Hove.
