The idea would be that when the light turns green, using the average acceleration and speed limit on the road to calculate how long an average car needs to get to the next light, the next light then turns green so that the car wouldn't need to slow down. It would be kind of like opening a floodgate and allowing it to go in sections that wouldn't need to be slowed down. It would allow faster and safer vehicular movement.

As I drove down the street today I realized something. There are a lot of really bad drivers. There are also quite a number of stoplights that I have to drive through to get anywhere. It often seems like I hit every red light there is. I had the idea to change the way the stoplights are synchronized on the main roads near campus (and through-out the rest of the city.) So that when you are on a main road you can just keep going and only hit one red-light total. (If that.)
