My mom took us kids to school everyday, but I remember a time my step-dad had to complete the task and for whatever reason, he brought the remote control along with him. As in, for the television. Next thing we know he was using it to change the streetlights and make them green. He timed it perfectly to click at the light and we would be on our way. By the end of what typically was a really boring drive he had us all convinced the remote changed the lights.
