Fifty-five green lights in a row

Sometimes you just have to take joy in the little wins in life. It's not always about getting the big promotion at work or winning the lottery, sometimes it's just enough to hit a green light at the perfect time. And sometimes that turns into two lights, then three, and if you are the guy in the video below, it turns into 55 consecutive green signals.

There are mitigating circumstances of course. The driver is in Manhattan, NY, at around 3:00AM, and the traffic is made almost entirely of taxis. He also definitely has some close calls and is braking for the red light several times as it turns green. But good luck, 55 times in a row, starts to look an awful lot like skill.
