That light at Vineyard and Montevino has been a mixed success. Traffic is much better on Vineyard through that intersection during commute hours, but is worse further back on Bernal. It is like the traffic that used to accumulate at Vineyard and Montevino has just been moved elsewhere.
Regarding sitting at lights at night, I agree it is somewhat stupid. I got stopped alone at Hopyard and Black at 11pm one night and then waited for the light to cycle just to let a car turn left onto Hopyard. I don't understand why certain lights can't be a flashing red or flashing yellow at those hours of the night. The car could have gone left long before I neared the intersection if it were flashing red or yellow.

I leave my home at about 5AM to get to work and I regularly go through the red light there (after stopping and looking both ways). It's 3 minutes to change from red to green and I'd rather pay the damn ticket then wait for the light.
BTW, if I get hit, then it's not my fault because you hit me.
