Recent research has shown that large rewards can be reaped with relatively inexpensive expenditures. For example, it is estimated that literally millions of vehicle-hours of delay each year are caused by poor traffic signal timings, and that up to 10 percent of all traffic delay could be eliminated by improving signal timings. The potential benefit in terms of reduced congestion, reduced travel times, reduced fuel consumption, reduced emissions and reduced fuel costs are enormous, and the price to achieve these results is typically 1/10th to 1/50th of the benefits accrued.
