Greek Traffic Light Fun

If you fast forward to 1 min 33 seconds into this clip, the reporter says that workers at a power plant in Greece went on strike, which “left large parts of the mainland with no electricity [cut to picture of traffic lights which are clearly off] and throwing traffic into chaos”.

Problem is, the traffic in the background is flowing smoothly – I don’t know whether traffic slows even more smoothly than this in Greece when the lights are ‘working’, of course – but turning off the traffic lights doesn’t appear to have made things noticeably worse.
