Aberdeen is tycoon town. If you're not a tycoon yet, you will be soon! It's great that this spirit of individualism has spread to the hard-pressed busy motorist - why should he allow petty officialdom stupid rules like red lights stand in his way? He's busy! He's Important!
And he's definately more capable of making up his own mind when it's safe to go or not than some automatic petty traffic control robot (the traffic lights.) In any case, traffic lights should be advisory only. It's great to see this busy hard-pressed motorist pushing this agenda in Aberdeen.
