99 words about Stoplights

I'm in Hartford, by the Convention Center waiting and waiting at a red light for nonexistent side traffic to pass by, thinking about "intelligent stoplights". I saw them in Santa Fe. If no one was coming, and someone was waiting, then they gave that someone the green light. Less gas wasted idling. But more importantly a place that acts as if it is actually aware that real people are passing through and should be treated with consideration. Smart signals aren't rocket science - just common sense. Unlike the "who gives a damn" lights that greet visitors to our capitol city.
