Hanging traffic lights

Its only here in Marikina City that I’ve seen hanging Traffic lights.


Literally, they’re hanging from electric cables.

Not only that, there are also hanging street lights (see the thing at the back of the traffic light in the picture?).

I think this is a cost cutting measure of making use of cables instead of posts. Plus, these types of traffic ligghts will be quickly seen by motorists.

Although this type can also be a cause of injury to motorists or damage to vehicles if in case it collapses or someone accidentaly cuts the wires. But i haven’t read or heard such incidents yet. 😀
