Well John, I had originally thought of going that route for this proposal.  But while thinking about it, I thought it would muck up the "emergency" tag system.
 
Also in my proposal, I could take out the using of the "emergency" tag to mention what the traffic light is for.  Maybe the "note" tag would be of better use?
