Technology keeps getting stupider: Traffic lights

All night long there are traffic lights changing from red to green to allow traffic that isn't there to pass intersections where drivers coming from the other direction simply want to return home... only to sit at a red light in the middle of the night.  Why?  Because traffic lights are stupid enough to force us to send more money to Arabs because we have to waste gas braking and idling at red lights that needn't have changed.  There are sensors that would tell the lights that there is actually someone waiting to pass through the intersection, and would leave it green for the majority of traffic the majority of the time.  But most traffic lights are stupid, and more of them are than aren't.
