Red Light and Goldfish

I'm dying to know who sets the timing on the traffic lights in Bangkok. Sometimes a red light won't change for at least ten minutes. I've heard of people in this city who get out of their car at a red light to buy a snack from a street vendor and when they return the light still hasn't turned green. Fortunately, the last time I was stuck at a red light in a taxi there was a school of woven fish to entertain me.  It almost felt like I was watching goldfish in a bowl.
