If these signs are always on, it can help drivers know when a light is about to change. It's already done downtown, but let's do it on other thoroughfares as well. It can also build trust if traffic lights are synchronized. (If you drive the speed limit then you clear every intersection with the same number of seconds remaining, etc.) That will reduce speeding.
