The Fort Worth, Texas, Police Department has a new automated traffic light system that uses cameras to see if a light is inoperable and to determine when the light should be turned on.
The traffic light changes are automated and can take about two minutes.
The system is being tested by police in Fort Worth and Dallas and is scheduled to be rolled out to all Fort Worth city streets by early next year.
The system will monitor traffic on busy streets and send alerts when there is a light out, or if traffic is moving through a busy area.
If traffic is going through an area where there is an active or inactive traffic light, the system will automatically light up.
The lights can be configured to change colors from green to red when traffic is being diverted.
Drivers will not be asked to turn off their cars.
The signal can be activated using a smartphone app.
The department says it is using a combination of cameras and sensors to detect and report problems with traffic lights.
It says the traffic lights are designed to help improve safety and public safety.
