Make all traffic lights sensor based or timed/sensor based combo to help traffic flow. Austin is really behind on this. A combination of long light cycle times and lack of in-ground sensors causes traffic to pile up at a signal even when there is no cross traffic. This increases #commute times, wastes #fuel, unnecessarily adds to #pollution problems, and increases frustration.
