Love it or hate it??  A recent report in the Sydney Morning Herald highlights a new initiative in the Austrian capital, using traffic lights as a tool to promote harmony and road safety to the public.    Vienna is proudly promoting diversity, equality and tolerance through the launch of its new same-sex traffic lights.   They are designed to improve traffic safety by capturing the attention of drivers and pedestrians.  The new lights also have a larger illuminated area, making them easier to see.  In an effort to portray Vienna as a tolerant city, the new lights were launched ahead of this year’s Eurovision Song Contest, held last weekend.
