The Null Device

Laissez-faire traffic management

Motorists in the U.S. will soon be able to buy a device that turns traffic lights green. The device will cost about US$499 and interface with the infrared receivers at intersections that allow emergency vehicles to change the lights. Think of how much quicker you'll get that pizza when the pizza guy has one of those babies on his dashboard... (via FmH)

Hmm. Reminds me of that bit in Moscow from "Pattern Recognition" where people could buy flashing lights that allowed them to ignore traffic signals.
