  8. New Pinellas Trail signal in Clearwater is confusing for driver

    Roads

One day I'm faced with a new traffic signal, the likes of which I've never seen before, with no posted explanation of how a motorist is supposed to respond to it. Apparently, these belong in the "let them figure it out" school of driver education. Some ignore it, some slow down, and some stop and wave the cyclists to proceed across busy Lakeview Avenue, although they control only one of the four lanes of traffic! Worst idea I've ever seen.  …
