In England after the traffic light has been green, it goes to yellow then red; as it does in the United States. But after it has been red, the yellow lights up for a moment with the red, to give the rider a moment to take off the hand brake, and put their horse into gear; before galoping off when the green light comes on.
Sometimes all you need to protect your house, is a baby dragon.
There is a legend in Exeter about the headless pedestrian. That he was struck and killed many years ago by a speeding three-wheeled Reliant Robin after too many pints. (Him, not the Robin), and lost his head. He now wanders the streets, making whistling noises from his neck to help pedestrians survive a simple crossing.
The city has kindly painted a portrait of this headless pedestrian on a walking and bicycle path along the city walls.
In the alleyways next to the center of Exeter, eyes watch.
