One of the most important evolution in the traffic signs technologies is the automatic control system. In the previous Blog, I mentioned that the traditional traffic control is time consuming, as well as, effort wasting. In order to combat this issue traffic authorities supported this system with lofty sensors. The previous problem that inextricably intertwined with the traditional traffic signs is intervals. In that system, the intervals between switching from a sign to another is time consuming. However, this up-to-date system overcomes this problem. Therefore, all cars often move smoothly with any interruption. The traffic authorities supported the lights with sensors. The function of these sensors is to allow only the car that approached the crossing.
Taking Advantage of Lights Intervals
The sensors detect the nearest auto to the crossing signal. Therefore, it changes the sign swiftly to allow this car to move on. Then the traffic lights go back to its normal state. In this case, a person may arise a question; what if cars are present at all lanes. The answer is simple as this. If autos rush from all directions, at the same time, the sensors will back to their normal state. Some people may believe that this short time in nothing, however, it is not; every second count.
Traffic Congestion’s Ideal solution
The ideal solution of traffic congestion is taking advantage of every second. Imagine that between every traffic sign shift five seconds are wasted, how many will be on a day. Furthermore, this system will solve the problem of gaining more black points. It is true that if a driver crossed a red sign, s/he will gain twelve black points in the UAE. But is it not a time wasting when an auto comes form a lane and wait while no car on the other?
