Video: Video: Why the Dutch Wait Less at Traffic Lights

Hate waiting at traffic lights? Yeah, me too. Good thing the Netherlands has smarter traffic lights to make sure that happens as little as possible. It's amazing what you can do when you design to move as many people as possible, instead of as many cars as possible.
