Switching off Traffic Lights

I'd like to ask a relatively simple question – what would happen if we switched of traffic lights when we didn't really need them? I'd like to know from an environmental aspect what effect turning off the nations traffic lights would have towards saving electricity and reducing emissions. From a social point of view could the nation's road users manage with such a change? And from a technical innovation view point – could it and should it happen and if so how?

the economics of intercity bus services

Long-distance bus service in many countries is often pretty good, and there are multiple carriers - especially in many low to middle income countries. In the US, there are only two real major players (Greyhound and Peter Pan, which work together), and then a bunch of short haul operators like the many DC-NYC express buses. Does anyone know much regarding the economics of the long-distance bus industry? [more inside]

How can I convince my friend's dad she'll be safe to visit me in Israel?

I'm going to be studying in Jerusalem next year, and I'd really like it if one of my friends could come and visit me. The only problem is her father - he is very resistant to the idea, and undoubtedly gets his concerns from the news - which we know has an awful tendency of sensationalizing things beyond recognition. I was hoping you guys could help me put something together that she could show her father, to hopefully help assuage some of his fears. I mean, we're not planning on road-tripping down to Gaza or anything! [more inside]

Lady (needs a) Cab Driver

How would I find a really good car or taxi service in Austin, Texas? My wife had a bad experience and now refuses to take cabs--especially if its late at night or early in the morning. Her company pays for them, but she is afraid of bad driving and threatening individuals that have made her feel unsafe. I'd like a way to find a nice, safe, reliable driver. If there is someone you recommend, that would be good, too. Also, any tips on verifying the safety and legitimacy of such a person would be very helpful.

What's the deal with the "D" on a "wide load" sign?

A "wide load" vehicle on the highway seems to always have a sign on the back to indicate that it's a "wide load", but the sign doesn't say "wide load". Instead, it has the letter "D" in the middle of it, and red/white vertical bars. Why a "D"? What does the "D" stand for? Why not just have the sign say "WIDE LOAD"? I'm in Canada, if this is something that'd be different in other countries.
