Synced traffic lights at single-lane construction sites

Recommended Posts

Suggestion Name: Synced traffic lights at single-lane construction sites

Suggestion Description: At the moment the traffic lights at single-lane construction sites are not synced (seen in france). When two vehicles approach the site at the same time, accidents often occur. It would benefit everyone, if the traffic lights were synced.

Any example images:

Why should it be added?: Fewer accidents would occur.

I like this Idea,I would also like it if this was possible.

Do not know why this is not the case or whether it is possible but I would be happy about it.

In addition, I can only agree that this would result in fewer accidents and disputes...  ^_^

The team did the flashing lights and synced the rail crossings so I think this would be possible.  I think this should be done as a matter of urgency +1

I know there are issues like this just like the train warning lights and gate going down and the team synced them so I could see this possible. Don't forget this mod is still in alpha, so they might be working a fix for this for the final release. I know synced lights at construction sites would be easier for everyone to see but in the meantime you just have to drive carefully around them.

+1 because other traffic lights are already synced and I think it is possible to do same with single-lane construction lights :)

+1 I think is a nice idea because we avoid accidents at the best :)

 

Good luck for your suggestion

I've never had an accident on those stretches with roadworks. If I see a green light, I'll check the players list and the GPS and then I'll drive through, slow enough so I can swerve to a side if someone is oncoming 130-140 Km/h (which is the cause of most accidents, not the traffic lights). But it would be a lot better if they were synced. Couple of days ago I stopped at one of those red lights, a truck was coming the other way and stopped too... Both lights were red... If both would have been green, I would've already seen the oncoming truck and stopped (I know that most people don't stop even at red lights, so that's something I do by pure instinct).

this would be a good idea however I think its been tried once and didn't work around those areas you do get a lot of accidents and I think it would reduce them but lets face it the amount of people who don't follow traffic lights I don't think it would help to much because of that so it is a catch but I see where your coming from with this

+1 Good idea. The team did Train Crossing synchronisations so they could do that too. It will be helpfull and nice. In the other hand many truckers when nobody nearby, dont stop at red light :) Sometimes when nobody on TAB im doing the same, but ,,SHHHH,, :D

I think that it should be possible.
It´s is a good idea, and it would probably save admins from reading some reports, where everyone is right.

+1!

Drive safe!

Curious, if regular traffic lights are synced why aren't those lights synced? I thought they were synced to begin with lol. 

Because from what I can tell, the construction zone lights work on a different script system than normal lights and conventional sync codes don't work as they conflict with sync codes for normal lights etc. 

 

The he bottom line is this, unless you are a complete Moron, you'll not have an accident at these zones by simply slowing down in that area and using a thing called your window to see if other traffic is coming towards you at the same time asthelight is showing green for you, fro, don't go forward, wait till it's clear before proceeding, chances are you won't even get fined for  passing there'd anyway.

 

so like railroad crossings, given enough time, I expect the TMP team will find a method for these issues, but the thing is, because there's so few construction zones on the entire road network, it's not really a top priority unless there's one in a super congested area that is causing a lot of issues, like with the rail crossing on the Calais-Duisburg road which caused so many issues with it being desynced that something had to be done and done fast.

 

so personally, I say it's a -1 for an urgent thing to be done, but a +1 for something to be eventually sorted out.

 

also this has been asked dozens of times before..
