CA1 California MUTCD 2012 Yellow Change Interval Formula

California MUTCD 2012 Yellow Change Interval Formula

Tell the judge to look at the equation for T which precedes the equation for T that is in a box. Note the V in the denominator.

The formula you are looking at is a simple rate x time = distance formula. Here you see the form time = distance / rate, where rate is V--the SPEED limit and the numerator is the deceleration DISTANCE.

Understand what the formula means. You learned it in elementary school. Be confident! Learn it and you will save yourself hundreds of dollars and a higher insurance premium.

The formula means that when the light turns yellow and you are farther from the intersection than the "decleration distance", you must stop. You have the deceleration distance to stop.

The formula also means that when the light turns yellow and you are closer to the intersection than the "deceleration distance", you must proceed and proceed at no less than the speed limit V. You must keep up your pace by going the speed limit or even more. You CANNOT SLOW DOWN for any reason. The formula disallows slowing down. If you slow down, then the light will turn red before you enter the intersection.

If you slow down to turn left, right or U, just before entering the intersection, California can force you to run a red light.

If you slow down because some driver ahead of you slowed down, California can force you to run a red light.

If you slow down for any reason like railroad tracks, bumps in the road, traffic on the other side of the intersection, traffic egressing or exiting business entrances, etc., California can force you to run a red light.

Tell the judge that the engineering standard is not compatible with reality. There are cases when drivers have to slow down before entering the intersection. The formula does not cover those cases. Tell the judge that the formula itself violates the Laws of Nature. A judge understands the legal bearing of "Laws of Nature." The formula violates Newton's Second Law of Motion F = ma where a = v/t. The formula says a = v/2t. The Laws of Nature are unbreakable and undebatable. The Laws of Nature are higher than the US Consitution because they apply everywhere from San Francisco to London to Mars. Therefore enforcing the California yellow change interval timing standard is illegal for those cases. There is nothing a driver can do to overpower the Laws of Nature. Not even a red light camera can empower a driver to walk on water.

CA2 Transportation and Traffic Engineering Handbook, 1982

Transportation and Traffic Engineering Handbook, 1982

These two pages contain the engineeers' operational directions for the yellow light. Read the bottom of the first column and the top of the second column. Note that engineers tell a driver that he must not decelerate on route to the intersection and that sometimes the driver must accelerate to beat the light.

CA3 Misapplied Physics in the International Standards that Set Yellow Light Durations Forces Drivers to Run Red Lights

Misapplied Physics in the International Standards that Set Yellow Light Durations Forces Drivers to Run Red Lights

This paper explains the physical meaning of the yellow change interval formula, its history and how today's traffic engineers all over the world misapply the formula and force drivers to run red lights.

CA6 California Professional Engineer Requirements

California Professional Engineer Requirements

The statutory requirement for a professional engineer is to know the science and apply it in his work (section 6701). The traffic engineer does not know the physics of this own yellow light formula and forces drivers to run red lights. He therefore violates section 6704a and is forbidden to practice engineering.
