All the red lights
And the stop signs

from Childish Gambino (Ft. Lloyd) – III. Telegraph Ave. ("Oakland" by Lloyd) Lyrics on Rap Genius


With respect to the story Gambino has laid, he reiterates how nothing is going to stop him from getting to Oakland, to see this girl.

In a more metaphorical sense, he’s ignoring any warning signs or bold obstacles in his path; he wants to retain a relationship with this girl, desperately.

In a broader theme of life, Gambino may also simply referring to the conception of “perseverance”, something he has demonstrated throughout this song via the story.
