Beep. Beep. Beeeeeeeeep.

Nothing is worse than waiting at an intersection, as the seconds minutes tick by while you stare down an unyielding red light.

Some things just never change, like certain traffic lights in this city, especially when you really don’t have the 15 extra seconds to spare.

We asked our readers to tell us some of the city’s worst offenders. So here, in no particular order, are some of Vancouver’s most infuriating traffic lights.

Has your most hated red light made the list? Let us know in the comments section below.

Canada Way off ramp, Highway 1

Sure, this could be chalked up to the whole “rush hour” volume, but I swear that unchanged light has a vendetta against me, and me alone.

Quebec Street and Expo Boulevard

I just want to make it to the Canucks game on time! Whyyyyyy.

Canada Way and Boundary Road

This one is even worse because you can see the cars flying by on the highway, but you are still… never… moving….

Terminal Avenue and Station Street

Look out for people running red lights at this one. Sometimes those extra 3 minutes are worth the ticket, apparently.

Nanaimo Street and 33rd Avenue

This intersection isn’t even close to downtown, but it isn’t getting you there any faster, either.
