It's about damn time! My God, traffic lights can be downright ridiculous! This will save so much time, gas, etc.

Watch oil companies pay to have this locked away...

More time on the road mean more gallons burned...

Here in Merca, we won't see these. Oil companies will prevent it, and the excuse will be "it costs too much....." Yet my state just spent millions on camera's to "catch speeders" before voting on them, once we got to vote, every last camera had to be removed. Great way to waste millions if you ask me.

Before they ever did that, people were asking "why not just extend red lights" and the government responded "it takes too much effort." They have no interest in our safety when they have a chance to profit off our mistakes.
