From The Pink Panther Show:
The Inspector seems to have his signals crossed, or has some issues with color-blindness. You see, as we all know, we cross the street on the red light, not green, as the Inspector would insist. Maybe that's how they do things in France, but not here. Green means the cars have the right of way, and red is for the pedestrians.
