Hey there, I believe it is vitally important that the traffic lights on the 2 intersections of Abel Smith / Victoria and Karo Dr / Victoria are in sync. They don't always appear to be. I have observed people being given a green light at the first intersection heading up Victoria St (Abel Smith & Victoria) and then subsequently driven straight through a red light at the next one (Karo Dr & Victoria). This is hugely dangerous. As these lights are placed so bizarrely close together it's very easy to understand how people can see the green of one set of lights and miss the red of the other. Simply bring these 100% in sync and avoid the problem.
