MANY AVENUES ARE A BIG PROBLEM AS US1 , A LOT OF THE TRAFFIC  IT'S BECAUSE THE SYNCHRONIZATION OF THE LIGHTS ARE  WAY OFF , YOU GET THE GREEN LIGHT AND NEXT BLOCK IS FULL AS THEY ARE ON RED , THE SAME WITH THE LEFT TURNS COMPLICATE TRAFFIC , SOME INTERSECTIONS YOU HAVE TO WAIT MORE THAN 2 MINUTES TO GET THE NEXT GREEN LIGHTS, THIS PROBLEM AFFECTS ALL HIGHWAYS AS ALL EXITS ARE WRONG DESIGNED AND COMBINED WITH THE TRAFFIC LIGHTS MAKE A JAM EVERY WHERE.

Many thanks for posting this idea too Jose - there are a few posts about traffic lights in this challenge - if nothing else the city will be nudged to take a look at how well the lights operate I should think! Katie - Facilitator
