Yes, I do - this is one of my phobias!
I will drive down back streets etc, and will often count how many traffic lights to get home while I am driving and then go off the main road to avoid them if this saves one traffic light!

No not at all. Where we live, there is no way we could avoid them.
Sometimes, yes. If I am in a hurry, I have been known to take the ' back route' as we call it. Absolutely no lights, brilliant. A lot quicker.
No. There is really no alternate route where I live. I just try to avoid travelling in peak hour traffic.
Where I live there are no traffic lights, so no, I don't drive out of my way to avoid them. Traffic lights are only a very minor thing in my life, so I've never considered trying to avoid them.
I don't go out of my way to avoid traffic lights

I've never really thought about avoiding lights. . . . but I do like to go the quiet back ways to places.

I have never heard of doing this.

I just drive as I have always done, and if there are lights I could care less.Makes no difference to me.
No. Traffic lights don't bother me.
I,ve never actually thought about it to tell you the truth, there is quite a few on my way to work,so no not really.
I do not drive!!!! So I do not have this problem!!! most people I travel with are very sensible about the routes they take to get get anywhere we need to go so traffic lights are rarely a drama!! It is very easy to avoid traffic lights here in Townsville and most people tend to do so wherever possible!
no, I do not.
was once with a friend who avoided the traffic lights and travelled through all the back streets to get to our destination it took far longer than going the direct route. I made a note to never travel with her again.
No, there are no traffic lights in my town so they're only a problem if I'm travelling to the next town over. Since its a major highway, there is no avoiding the traffic lights then.
I don't drive, but my husband has occasionally gone a different way to avoid 1 set of the 2 sets of lights, about 3 k's from where we live.
