Traffic Lights

Can the city change the timing of the lights? Sometimes I go through one light and the next one changes to red before I get 100 feet.

The traffic lights in the city to be synchronized so, cars can get through a set of lights without having to stop so often. Many people race to the next light knowing they will have to stop if they don't speed to the next one. This may cause accidents and lead to a dangerous roadway in the city.

The "SPaT"/ Signal Phase and Timing Challenge website may provide some insight on possible direction. It's a "challenge" by the federal government to municipalities to dip their toes in timing stop lights by starting with a timed strip of ~ 20 intersections. https://transportationops.org/spatchallenge
