Synchronize traffic signals

Why are traffic lights not synced?

When you think of it, it is not just an issue of time, it is an energy issue. No doubt about it, when you start and stop your car in traffic, it uses more gas than when you can just ride through stoplights.

The question is, why is it so darn hard for cities, counties and the state to synchronize lights?

In St. Petersburg, Fla., the city has figured out how to synchronize the lights perfectly on the major thoroughfares of First Avenues North and South and Fourth Street. You never hit a red light if you drive at the right speed.

Wake up, Forsyth County!
