I often think the same thing regarding the subways: One 30-second delay holding a door open for one person can slow hundreds of people down. All those 30-second delays add up.

Meanwhile, the traffic lights in NYC have mechanical clockwork-style timers, so a device like this wouldn't work.

A related debate is whether private citizens should be allowed to own cell phone jammers (e.g., for riding the bus). It's a grand clash of the externalities.

A company sells tv zappers, meant to turn tvs off discretely in bars and airports.

I'm all for it. Kill your television.
