      fresh with majority going left as said, pressing the button for the right crosswalk would prevent the right side, so that light would remain red, while the the light turns green for turning left, as only the right light would stop traffic on that end.

      So in Utah with three way intersections like the one in the subdivision story the crosswalk across the main through street will go to walk while the turn signals go to a flashing yellow, just meaning yield to crosswalk or cross traffic.

    Fresh- for your crosswalk problem!
    As a pedestrian myself, I learnt that (and tips for anyone else if you're crossing a street) crossing on the right-hand side of said t-shaped street is better. Let's name the subdivision street Street A, and the big street Street B. Most big crosslights go like this: Street A turning left, Street A full green, Street B full green. By pressing the pedestrian crossing on the right-hand side, the crosslights are forced to do another run of Street A turning left, since if a pedestrian is crossing on the right but not the left, its the only way to keep the flow of traffic going and get the pedestrians across safely.
    This explanation would also explain how OP managed to get his daughter to press the button. If she was sitting on the passenger seat, it would have been easier for her to run to the right side's button than the left.
    Hope this helped, and thanks for the great video!
    Edit: Reading others comments also made me realize the rule of right of way, but I guess my explanation is another angle to look at it.

      Except there are no pedestrians, which he said over and over. In Portland we have these three ways everywhere... the cross traffic stops, the traffic forced to make a turn gets a green BUT has to wait for pedestrians before moving. And this guy, in this case, says there are never any pedestrians.

          Cross walk lights and traffic lights can occur simultaneously in some lights. It's stupid, but it happens. I noticed one just the other day. Not truly safe if you ask me, but pedestrian always has right of way if they have a green light to cross, regardless of other traffic lights.

                Honestly I understood like 5% of the traffic story and even with some of the comments here I have no fucking idea what is going on. I feel like I should consider getting my driver’s licence.

                          The subdivision crossroad thing is definetely working, at least in Germany such a T intersection which combines green light for the walkers with a green light for the subdivision are pretty common and cars just have to wait for the pedastrians to leave the crossing before clearing the crossing. If there are no pedastrians and you jump out of your car, press the button and get back you can indeed just drive a bit later because you gained yourself an additional 'green' which you would not have had otherwise and although it might not be legal or supported it isn't illegal either.

                          It's just a little traffic hack, noone has yet thought about regulating, at least over here. If you'll be seen be a very grunty cop, he might come for you with some bulshit that won't hold up in court but usually the police couldn't care less as you're not only doing nothing illegal but you're not even putting someone in harm with it. It doesn't even count as 'Avoiding a red light be taking a turn' or something like that, as you are not avoiding any red lights :D

                            hoa can't single out someone to apply a rule to. if caught doing so they must completely remove the rule. if they refuse they could face fines. i would say it's not evn a hard court case, but that would be a lie. you don't even have to go to court. just send a letter and it will be automatically resolved. this guy could have easily and legally solved his problem in another, less disputable, way if he'd focused his research on their application of the rule rather than the rule itself. that's u.s. law for ya!

                              In Australia, crosswalks only stop traffic on that street, however, perpendicular streets can still go EVEN IF UR CROSSING and its really dumb but perfectly legal.

                                at the beginning of a cycle a cross walk extends the amount of time by 5-30 secs(it is dependent of the length of road and avg walking speed) as it keeps the red light red for the allot time for any peds to cross and after the count down the green light turns yellow and then red at witch point the light that was red then become green, it can be observed by simply heading down to any intersection and watching the ped sign count down. some places have an auto ped system witch keeps the ped sign in tune with the traffic cycle as the normal means of increasing the amount of time the light stays green can and will cause a traffic build up on car heavy roads as just having the green light remain green for just a few extra seconds causes a traffic build up over time and wont be fully realized until a breaking point

                                        If that’s happened in aus (with the traffic lights story) it would allow you to turn but normally you need to wait for the pedestrians

                                          Fresh (bless his aesthetic heart) is probably assuming the stoplights are arrows, which is where his logic gets messed up. The stoplights are likely two normal green circles, not a left and right green arrow.

                                          Fresh's logic is that pedestrian lights shouldn't turn white on a green arrow that intersects them, since white pedestrian lights and green arrow both indicate right-of-way.

                                          If you drop the assumption that they're arrows (it's unlikely they're arrows since this is a small street with little to no pedestrians), OP's story is fine. Pedestrian lights can be white on a green circle stoplight, because green circle doesn't mean right-of-way (ergo left turners have to yield to pedestrians).

                                              Pressing the crosswalk button for the main road side will lengthen the light, not only adding time for "pedestrians" but for the cars also. As far as I know, it isn't illegal for someone to press the crosswalk button to lengthen their time.

                                                  (7:30) Why are you ignoring that only the crosswalk on the right (on your image) is green, and the left is red? Then left turning from the sideroad, and right turning on the left main road is allowed.

                                                    So from what the OP said his crosswalk is rarely used so is someone were to get out pand ush the button, get back in the car, they're light would turn green and the major street lights will turn red because nobody is Crossing on the crosswalk they don't have to worry about hitting pedestrians. So essentially they're faking out the crosswalk system. It actually makes perfect sense.

We drive on the opposite sides of the roads (as well as upside down) and due to that, left turners would have to stop and give way, whilst right turners would wait for the light, and the cross walks do lengthen times greatly.

                                                                            • Martijn Riepma
