Further discussion of smart traffic lights | Letter

In response to Richard Morris’ letter, “Why can’t we have smart traffic lights?” in the Oct. 27 issue of the Reporter:

Living in the Redmond area, I am consistently frustrated with being stuck in traffic lights. SMART monitoring lights have the ability to change our city immensely. SMART monitoring lights in certain cities have been set up to monitor and organize the flow of traffic. This issue is important because many people understand the discomfort and struggle of being stuck in traffic when they want to reach their destination as soon and as conveniently as possible. Redmond needs to implement SMART monitoring lights to be able to give all drivers the most convenient and enjoyable travels. Even though traffic in the Redmond area is very congested, SMART monitoring lights will be able to manage such congestion and will be able to ease the difficulty and frustration of local drivers.
