I thought, “Oh no, not another traffic light. However, I have to acknowledge what a great job they did in programming that light system. It allows for cars coming from Hough Road to have the light change for them quickly and as soon as they clear the light goes back to Mall Road.

How much gasoline, money, pollution, brake wear, and time (even accidents) could be saved or avoided if all the traffic lights used this technology?

It could also allow for more left turns on green, instead of turn signals in many places, which now generate a real loss of gasoline and time. Think about it!
