Nice technology, but every time I see something like this I wonder where the hell my self-driving/flying car is.

It doesn`t help much for the car to tell me I have to drive 35 mph to make the next light when there are two f***tards driving side-by-side in front of me doing 27 mph.

"Unless you`re in DC where the average speed is 22mph because all lights are timed to stop you while heading to the center of town..."

So if I have to drive 100 mph to hit the next green light, will the traffic cop be understanding?
Was this designed by the NSA to track criminals and terrorists- AKA EVERYbody?
How long before hackers figure out how to infect the traffic light system?
Hope all these scenarios have been thought out and addressed better than most problems laid before corporate/government partnerships.

It`s going to be like a starting pistol for drivers that want to get the jump on other traffic users. And what use is it if you stuck in a line of traffic?

I wonder what happens when all cars are equipped which this system and everybody wants to go through the green light at the same time...

That must have been a CGI world because there is never that light of traffic on the Vegas Strip.

Your auto-driving car exists and is run by (who else?) Google.

It counts down to a green light on the display...this is about fuel efficiency not about making real life into a car racing video game, right?
