Top best answers to the question «Why are traffic lights mounted sideways»

The most common reason to position a traffic light horizontally is clearance… In areas with high winds, traffic lights are sometimes configured horizontally. A horizontal configuration reduces wind resistance and offers improved stability for the light since a greater surface area can be secured to the pole or wire.
