Modding a TRAFFIC SIGNAL (or STOP LIGHT) Answered

Please forgive me if I am missing the INSTRUCTABLE on this, but I'm looking to MOD a Traffic Signal (or Stop Light) and I haven't found any within MAKE or INSTRUCTABLES website(s). I was gonna hook it up to a Light Switch (BORING!) but was hoping I could get some ideas ... C'MON INSTRUCTABLER's!!! Help! thanks.

. First thing to do is determine the voltage. There is a good chance that the thing doesn't run off of mains.

. OK. A lot of equipment like that uses non-standard voltage, parts, &c, to deter theft.
