Blinking red lights

12 posts in this topic

Suggestion Name: Blinking red lights all times of the day

Suggestion Description: Many times you come to a red light and nobody is around for a long distance. I think that lights should blink red (meaning you can treat it like a stop sign) if there are no trucks within a 300 meter radius

Any example images: No

Why should it be added?: Sitting at a red light waiting for nothing is a waste of time

-1 there is already a rule that allows you to pass a red light at any speed if there is nobody coming (you can tell through your radar). If they flashed red I think people would start expecting other people to stop and just blow right through without even looking at the map. 2 of these people meet, and you have a collision. Let alone that a whole city with flashing red lights is totally unrealistic.

-1 as mentioned above there's that rule. 

If I had to guess, not many people even read the rules anyway so most people would not know what to do at flashing red lights. 

It's common sense really, I always skip the reds where the only intersections lead off the map so there's 0 chance of hitting anyone, plus the radar makes it safe to do so anyway at quiet areas.

Like @sko0923 already said, there is a rule where you can go through red when there's nobody else nearby. Do not forget that kids still play this game, and do not know the rules of the road very well; this would cause a bigger problem on roads like C-D.

 

Edit: I forgot that this is in the ATS section and not in the ETS2 one. For TS if you do not own ETS2: C-D is a very rusy road in ETS2.

This suggestion is based on the wrong assumption that all players use the radar (as player list and/ or visible on the GPS map).

You should really use common sense. Stop at the light, look both ways, if nothing is coming then go. 

 

I doubt you'd be able to change lights based on how far someone is from them.

Hello, I do not agree with your suggestion. Indeed, first of all, TruckersMP can not modify the elements of the map, indeed, it is necessary to write to SCS if you wish to propose your ideas.
Also, in real life, if you have a red light, you have to stop and wait until it turns green, even if there are no other people.
Therefore, and as Euro Truck Simulator 2 is a truck driving simulation game, I do not agree with your suggestion. I love the realistic dimension of the game.
In addition, if there is no player, you can always pass the red light, it is you who decide to drive in a realistic, regulatory or unrealistic way.

Moreover, I add that panels are added under the traffic lights, to indicate the order of priority, when the traffic lights do not work. So even if the fire is red, you can respect these priorities (These signs), Even if I strongly discourage you. 

Indeed, if you have an accident, It will be entirely your fault.

 

Cordially,

Yoyo_ManSg
