    Red arrow or not the actual lens itself is circular ,besides anybody with license knows what red ,yellow ,and green lights mean. Remember stupidity is not always a good defense.

        Lol ,I agree.

          It's what they are taught to do while in Law School. (lol)

            As any physics teacher will tell you, light bends... So... the light from the red arrow will bend around the earth in a CIRCULAR pattern, eg the red arrow is still a valid traffic control device...

                Hey Mr. Wizard, your logic is off. While Relative Physics does teach that light bends due to gravity in Spacetime, it wouldn't go in a circular pattern around the earth unless the mass of the planet was great enough to create a black hole. Also, quantative physics is going to argue that light on the photonic level refracts rather than bends. You're better off going with the lens being round argument.

                  I will just go with the ,"Your honor what would a reasonable person holding a valid OL know a red signal's (be it an arrow or a full circle) purpose of operation to be?"

                  Seriously ,from the time you get your permit through the drivers program at your school to the time you have driven for 20 years you know what a red light is regardless of the shape. If you do not then I feel no amount of r***le-d***le from an attorney will sway the DA and the judge on this one ,then I see a few hours in a defensive drivers course to refresh your mind.

                    My logic is off... That's exactly what my LT. and the General (Wife) tell me every time they are wrong... Realtive physics proves I'm right. Since The General lives on planet earth, and her purse is present with her on the earth, I have irrefutable proof that my paycheck always falls into that blackhole...

                    Although it may seem as if quantitive physics may argue against my initial thesis, it actually bolsters it. Since the light would refract, ie go in multiple directions, my argument compliments the known scientific principles of quantative physics in the following manner;

                    I followed many command staffs (Not mine of course) well known, extensively used, and seldom overturned principle of throwing the well known substance into the fan, and seeing what sticks in many places on the wall when they are confounded by an obviously silly argument, but can't come up with a Masters Degree answer to it....

                    Once again the KISS answer is the best. It is multiple circular red lights set in a red arrow shape.
