Turn off traffic lights during off-peak
Turn off the majority of traffic lights during off-peak periods. This will allow traffic to flow naturally and not unnecessarily create traffic because you are waiting for the traffic light sequence to run through (even though you might be the only person on the road). It will also reduce pollution from the cars no longer having to wait in idle. The added benefit of this is the saving on energy. I've never quite understood why all traffics need to show the green light at all times.
Why the contribution is important
Three tangible benefits immediately spring to mind: 1. Energy saving on having to power traffic lights 24/7 2. Better traffic flow 3. Reduction in pollution
