T´riffic Lights

Kathryn Quinn

These bizarre traffic lights have got drivers seeing red after bringing streets to a standstill in southern China.

Locals say there are more than 20 different sets of lights on a single pole controlling one set of crossroads in Chongqing city.

"When you look at one light it's red but the one next to is it green.

"No-one knows where or when to go because they just seem to change randomly," said one motorist.

But local traffic officials have baffled drivers - by saying they shouldn't obey any of them.

"They are just for decoration because the junction looked bare. They look very pretty at night but drivers should just ignore them," said a spokesman.
