Adjusting signals would ease traffic in snowstorms

Waterloo Engineering researchers have found an inexpensive way for cities to ease congestion and improve safety by tweaking the timing of traffic lights during snowstorms.

After collecting data and running sophisticated computer simulations, the researchers determined that adjusting signals at intersections to take poor road conditions into account could reduce delays by up to 20 per cent.
