I have a feeling that emergency services and the police already have it. I
think I heard about it being used.

It's called Opticom and requires a sensor to be mounted at each signal that can be controlled. The emitters mounted on emergency vehicles are activated as they approach a controlled intersection. For those that use visible light, it appears like a small strobe when active; I believe some models use infrared instead of visible light.

You can probably find plans for building an emitter capable of triggering Opticom, but beware! In many locations unauthorized use of such devices will land you in court if you are caught.

Thanks Jerry. Very interesting. My niece told me to ask a friend of mine in
the NYPD about them.

That would really make life easy.

In NYC, they have the lights synchronized. You can go for miles if you time
the lights properly. But up here in Westchester, as soon as you get close
to the light, it turns red. You go a block, wait at the light, go the next block,
and another red light. It would be faster to walk sometimes if you had no
packages.

I remember that show! I'm not sure how well the humor would translate 35 years later, though.

Pornography, Freedom and Social Destruction

It's amazing that people think what is not porn today was definitely porn less than 40 years ago.

ok, I don't know that for a fact (see above), but my point is stuff on tv is going worse and worse really really fast. I know this because I know of people who watch tv on a regular basis, and I've heard about the reality shows and have seen a couple seconds of a preview of one of them... a PREVIEW, and was astonished.

Those who aren't tempted by this STILL ought to be praying for an increase in purity because purity isn't just regarding the 6th and 9th Commandments, but it is interested in moving the will to God, so to grow in purity IS to grow in love of God... who IS the Perfect Love and Who gives us the PERFECT EXAMPLE of LOVE... from the Cross.
