The Traffic Light Controller enables you to gain control of your road rage with a sense of understanding!
We all have it to some degree and we all know somebody who has it worse than us—road rage! The Traffic Light Controller teaches you street smarts, giving you the knowledge to keep your road rage at bay. If you understand what’s going on with the red light, maybe you’ll be able to wait more patiently for the green light!
You see, my wife, Debra, and I love taking our Sunday drives but we’re sick of sitting at red lights. I figured I could build something to control the traffic lights so we always have green.
I eventually realized that the original project was merely for LEDs and couldn’t actually control a real traffic light, but I built the project anyway and thereby gained an understanding of why traffic lights can’t switch from red to green solely for our driving convenience. The Traffic Light Controller helps keep Debra and me levelheaded in road-rage situations—ultimately saving our marriage!
