Power outage showed how insane our traffic light timing is

To The Daily Sun,
Today, July 5, there was a major power outage ranging from about Cumberland Rd. in Gilford almost to Trustworthy Hardware in Laconia. ALL of the traffic lights were out, on a day of very heavy traffic. Traffic flowed far faster and smother than on any day with operating lights! I guess we all have noticed the insane bad timing of the lights, and today proved that!
So, why is intelligent light timing avoided or prohibited?
