I like traffic lights

In case you’ve ever wondered…

Vertical slats are used to prevent people in the wrong spot seeing the light, eg for diagonal intersections like Camberwell Junction.

Horizontal slats are used to prevent people at a distance seeing the light, when they should be concentrating on a closer one.

Mesh can be used when both are a problem. Which is probably not very often.
