VIDEO - You Honk, You Wait!
It appears that drivers in Mumbai, India decided that if they all honked their horns the traffic signals changed to green faster. The resulting cacaphony results in sore eardrums, increased heart rate, added stress and contributes to traffic chaos. Something had to be done to preserve health and sanity.
The Mumbai police came up with what is known as the Punishing Signal. Honk loudly enough (more than 85 dB) and the red phase timing starts over again without a green phase in between. There is talk of extending the You Honk, You Wait system to other parts of the country.
