Unless you're some sort of miracle worker like this guy, you probably aren't an expert in timing out lights. But that can soon be solved thanks to the "Audi Online" traffic light information system. Connected to the Internet, it tells you the ideal speed to reach a green light at the next intersection. If that isn't possible—you still can't do 60 in the city—it'll give you a countdown to the next one.
Audi says the technology is fully functional and ready for production, so what's the hold up? Apparently there are a bunch of practical and legal issues to deal with. In other words, the government is stopping us from being great and hitting 50 green lights in a row in Manhattan. Thanks a lot, Uncle Sam.
