    If you were a Ron Burgandy sort of person, then a particular signal light in Scripps Ranch could have you either walking in circles or going a long, long way out of your way just to cross the street.

    It's not really the signal, but the control box mounted on the pole below the signal, you know, where you push the button.  

    The arrow on this particular box is pointing the wrong way. Instead of the arrow directing you across the street, as it should, it points back down the sidewalk, back in the direction from which you came.

    Check it out yourself if you happen to be in the neighborhood.  It's located on the southeast corner of Carroll Canyon Road and Scripps Ranch Boulevard.  

    Just don't pull a Ron Burgandy or you may never get home.
