I figured it was a test yesterday when the light at the intersection of Rt 1 and Amberton Drive was out, so I put on my brakes-- only to get angry honks and squealing tires from behind. Peer pressure got the best of me, and I coasted through it, keeping an eye out for cameras and hoping I didn't get a ticket the first day the law was passed.

I did the same thing and Mr. Policeman was sitting in his squad car on Amberton! No one got any tickets/citations. An hour later the light was still out, no police at the scene and no BGE or utility trucks anywhere in sight.
