The red arrow that shows up on some New York traffic lights to let drivers and pedestrians know that vehicles aren't permitted to turn. Considered unsafe for drivers and pedestrians alike because five seconds is hardly enough time for a driver to make a complete stop.
Why can't the DOT make those red arrow signals at least fifteen seconds long?! I hate those New York 5-second warnings!

Get a New York 5-second warning mug for your mother-in-law Helena.
