Answerland – Highway 6 traffic light

I was driving west on Highway 6 in Eagle-Vail and the light changed to red, but there were no cars getting off the Interstate exit. What’s up with that?

It depends on what time you were driving. During waking hours for most of us, the lights at the interchange are on a timer. That means they cycle on a specific schedule, no matter the traffic load. Other times, the lights are triggered by a sensors, meaning a car has to get off the highway and be in the left turn lane to trigger a green light.
