Eko stoplight by Damjan Stanković

| 2 Comments

From a link on the messageboard of Ken Jennings' blog (from a debate about photocop): Eko stoplight by Damjan Stanković A red light with an implicit progress bar, just like on computers, so you know how long you have to wait. (one images similar for yellow and green lights). This might max dynamic/adaptive signal timings more difficult, but it could reduce driver frustration.

The biggest drawback is that it might also encourage drivers to accelerate off the stop line sooner. If drivers know exactly when the light will turn green, there might be a tendency to jump the gun a little bit. Critics have drawn comparisons to racetrack lights.

That's why its important for school to teach teens the importance of defensive driving. This will make the roads much more safer for all drivers on road.
