Who's your friendly neighborhood? – Oak Mar 26 at 2:48
From Oak's comment above, the "neighbour" clue might refer to the Marvel character Sandman, who is an enemy of Spider-Man, as in friendly neighbourhood Spider-Man. – Nathaniel Mar 26 at 4:29
Great answer! I'm convinced this is going to be marked correct when you incorporate Nathaniel's clue. I was totally stumped on the "voice" part of the first clue. And Metallica used to be my favorite band. Doh! – TTT Mar 26 at 15:13
@TTT Precisely; But SHAME for you not getting that reference when you first read it :P – Oak Mar 27 at 12:14

The type of person that you mention can also stop traffic. – Khale_Kitha Mar 25 at 15:12
@Khale_Kitha true, that's probably a better, more specific relation to the riddle – elmer007 Mar 25 at 15:14
It is not policeman; However it is an interesting attempt. I edited in an hint – Oak Mar 25 at 17:21

I know it's kind of similar to answer of elmer007, but I'll give it a shot.

You are a:

When green light flashes, red guy dims out and all waiting drivers beep horn (in voice).

In fists I carry a stick

Believe it or not, red guy carries the traffic light pole (a big stick).

My neighbour I fight

Red guy and green guy always fight to dim the other one and show up.

And cars I hold 'em

Red guy stops traffic sometimes.
