Why it matters

Traffic is congested in Baltimore. http://www.baltimoresun.com/news/maryland/baltimore-city/bs-md-synchronize-lights-20180424-story.html

What does "good" look like?

Improved traffic flow in the CBD and enhance driver experience.

How could technology solve this?

Perform an optimization exercise to minimize average number of cars at lights.
