The traffic light we’ve come to know might be familiar, but that doesn’t mean it couldn’t stand to improve.

A concept that designer Chang-Chi Shih created for the iF Design Talents competition, the Smart Traffic Light uses a series of LEDs that are programmable to show the remaining time motorists have before the light changes at the intersection. It also includes a traffic cam to record any violations.

Though just a concept, having this timer warning could help ease impatient drivers, reassuring them that indeed the light will turn green soon enough.
