Well, two things, first when you have two reds (at least in Guad) generally you're not supposed to roll into the left turn intersection until the left one goes green (not always observed by the hoi polli ya know). But here it's actually quite a tribute to getting along with your fellow motorists.
You have to admit for the most part people give and take pretty well and when a light is blacked out you just sort of look around and give it your best guess as to what it means. Generally the reds are replaced more often than not, sometimes with the greens, once I saw them commandier a big Coke truck, climb up on top so they could reach the lights and swap bulbs. Personally I'd chip in for a new bulb or two but candidly I think it's quaint, goes with the cobblestones and dirt streets in my neighborhood - oh, and with the Home Depot street light I bought and Installed a couple years ago.
The actual reason I like this place is that it's 11:45PM and I have the stereo maxed out, windows/doors open playing XM 50's stuff like the Mar-Keys Last Night and absolutely NO ONE notices - and I do mean NO ONE and I'm out on the deck in shorts after laughing at the fools in Denver, Detroit, NYC etc. scooping snow and scraping windshields - ha, amateurs.
