Mexico vs United States -

think traffic lights* in Mexico are superior to those in the U.S. In America, before a red light, and after the green light, you have a solid yellow light warning drivers the light is about to turn red. The old joke... yellow light means floor it. In Mexico, when the light goes yellow, it slowly blinks four or five times then turns solid yellow for very short time, then red. think drivers would instinctively slow down for a blinking yellow light. When the solid yellow light appears, doesn't seem like driver would floor it but stop knowing the red light will quickly appear.

*traffic light invented by Garrett Morgan who also invented the gas mask. info via cartoon "Jump Start" by Robb Armstrong. note: there is some controversary re: that statement. google for more info
