A couple of years ago I was sitting in at a red light, along with several other vehicles. There was no cross traffic, and I remember thinking at the time "This is (whatever year it was). Why don't we have traffic lights that manage traffic flow based on actual traffic, rather than an 'optimal' timing?" Seems like things have only become worse with the new "optimal" timing being longer cycles. Sigh.

Still, I suppose when autonomous vehicles reach a certain level, traffic lights will be fazed out, almost completely.
Keep Calm and Carry On
