To the self-imposed safety planners who set the timing of stoplights, I wish for you a very long red colored beatdown. In the name of safety, you feel it necessary to set stoplights so my commute and that of many others is filled with starts and stops. Besides causing Americans to waste millions of gallons of gas starting, stopping, and idling needlessly, you actual create an unsafe situation. In an effort to somehow make it through the lights in time, most of the people I know are speeding and running yellows (and subsiquently reds) constantly to keep a stead speed, and of course there will never be enough law enforcement to ticket everyone. Switch the timing, get traffic flowing, and wake up.
