Why do the robots never work?

At every stop sign and every set of Robots (traffic lights) people walk down the road trying to make a living by selling you goods.
I have to investigate if I can go into a shop and purchase tights, tax disc holders and car chargers in South Africa or these items are in demand, cos that’s all they seem to try to sell you.
The robots often fail to work and you’d think all chaos would ensue, but you’d be wrong. Every car driver treats the failed lights like a they would when approaching a STOP sign and take it in turns to proceed, all very civilised, however roundabouts don’t work the same way as the UK as I’ve found out (I know this because I’ve been tooted at) you don’t give way to the right, you treat roundabouts as STOP junctions also.
