Some places are all go, sadly Milton Keynes is not one of them.
The BBC has reported that the council has run out of green bulbs for a number of traffic lights.
Tell me when my light turns green
The council said that the 'specialist lights' had not been manufactured for 20 years and it was impossible to get exact replacements.
It is 'looking at a new system' to replace these 'outdated' lights in the new year, a spokesperson said.
'They are not light bulbs like domestic ones but are specialist lights.'
Of course some might say this is the the exact moment that Milton Keynes - home of the roundabout - has been waiting for, much like a stopped clock.
However as a further bitter twist of fate, Northfield roundabout in the town is one of the places affected.
