Decades ago city officials said they were going to "synchronize" traffic lights so you would have to brake less often, and have a smooth flow going through the lights if you were going the speed limit. That has never happened....let's initiate that idea first...before we throw "millions" of dollars at a pipe dream. I do like the roundabouts I must admit.
