"Traffic Lights Go out at Beverley's Grovehill Junction – and Flow Improves"

From Hull Daily Mail:
BEVERLEY residents say traffic is flowing smoothly after the lights went out at the town’s infamous Grovehill junction.
The 42 traffic lights which control the new junction – dubbed the “red light district” – went out this morning.
Grovehill Road resident Anita Tomlinson said: “The traffic has been flowing very well since the lights went out, it’s flowing like it used to do when it was just a roundabout.
“I had wondered myself what would happen if all 42 lights went out but drivers are being very careful, they are seeing what is going on and so far it appears to be flowing well.”

This will be no surprise to anybody who's already seen what happens when traffic lights are turned off, and most of us have.
