Traffic Lights

Roadworks today often involve restricting the flow of traffic to one lane hence the use of traffic lights is becoming more popular. Over the past few years traffic light manufacturers have greatly improved the features of temporary lights and now vehicle activated lights are becoming specified by more often as they reduce lengthy queues. Basically the traffic lights are radio linked and have vehicle detection systems installed in them thus they adjust the length of time given on Red/Green depending on the flow of traffic coming either direction.

With vehicle activated traffic lights (shown below) motorists become less frustrated and are less likely to ignore a Red Light as often seen at roadworks.
