    Traffic lights 14th Jan 20 at 10:08 PM
    Am I right in saying that if you see a lit red light on the side of the traffic light control box there is a fault with them?

    No, that's the power light, that means it's working.

    I'm not seeing the bit in (a) that says "Unless there's a red light on the box at the side of the road, when all bets are off."
