Synchronizing signals

I have long wondered why the synchronization of traffic lights in Tampa and the surrounding areas was not a major topic of consideration by our city and county leaders. I recently read where Los Angeles has totally computerized the synchronization of all of its 4,500 traffic signals. They are certain that this new system will cut carbon emissions by reducing the number of times autos stop and start, as well as save in fuel consumption, resulting in the improvement of traffic flow. L.A. is the first major area to do so. Why canít the Tampa area be the second? Dom Cassano
