Can someone help me with this??

F. Y. I. - Stars and Bars - Question -

Q. I know that for certain events, like the marathon and games at Madison Square Garden, traffic lights are set to run in unusual ways. How often does it happen?

A: Although it happens a lot for sports events, there are no ironclad rules. The city’s Department of Transportation adjusts lights every day, whether for rush hour, a motorcade or the marathon, according to Nicole Garcia, a department spokeswoman.......

Does this person think that the lights are all green for the runners during a road race?
