I think there was a thread a short while ago that discussed what to do to defnd oneself against a dog attack, begun by dweste IIRC.

And IIRC, one dog was not considered a big worry by many. If you send your dog, that is your family pet, out to protect your personal property, you may be more upset at losing your family pet than you would be at losing something else.

I know someone that used to go on board ships, some from a terminal in Brooklyn. There was a point in time that you needed to have the guard take you to the ship because the terminal was guarded by dogs. Then it was no longer needed, because someone stole the dogs.

Trying to flip traffic lights like that would be akin to driving around neighborhoods pushing your garage opener remote button. You'd be about as likely of hitting the right code for any given light.

Beyond that, bugout with a motorcycle in an urban setting. Short of a jetpack, that is about the only other way you can hope to escape in a short time period.
The ultimate result of shielding men from the effects of folly is to fill the world with fools.

I have not been in the forum for quite a while and obviously things have changed. I was under the impression that this forum was to "toss ideas around, learn, ponder and DISCUSS them" with peers of equal stature and idealism. I am not one to judge. With that said I have learned that this thread is something that I have never thought of, probably will never need and that others that are in a position of needing to get out of a large metropolis may need to consider other possibilities. Just my opinion, and like everyone elses is subjected to rejection.

No ones mentioned it so I may have my fact wrong but I thought these devices worked by turning ALL lights RED.
