While driving home, I noticed that even though there were no cars on the arrow going from Davis Straits to Jones Road, the cars going downtown had to wait for the arrow to turn red. At least six cars would have made it through the light and help the horrendous back up each day.
I have a plan for Falmouth: Rent the robot from Stop and Shop. They don’t use it during the summer. The robot would see how many cars are on each lane and change the light so that the maximum amount of cars can make it through the light. Children can wave to the robot and the robot can blink his or her or its eyes back to them. A win-win situation.
If this works, the town can make the dumb lights smart with a robot and save a lot of gas. This can be part of the “Green New Deal.”
