Great Regulars: No, here in L.A., drivers peacefully wait

for you to look up (from your smart phone, most likely) and notice the left-hand signal is green. Once you do, you can take your time, inching forward like a glowworm. It's fine if only one car gets through per green arrow. No one seems to care. And as for intersections without a left-turn arrow--and this is truly confusing--drivers don't bother to creep into the intersection. They wait, like sedated animals, back at the light.
