The red light is short? (not fast)

Can you explain? Because 'fast' is an adverb? 'Short' as an adjective seems odd to me.

The red light is short. This term is rather idiomatic. A less idiomatic version is The red light is only on for a short time.

PS - Are you sure you don't mean this?

The green light is very short. Only 2 cars could get through at a time before the light turns red again.
