Happiness is hitting all the green lights


ANN ARBOR (WKZO) -- A new University of Michigan Study shows that traffic lights are dangerously easy to hack.

Hackers could make sure they hit nothing but green lights as they cruise down the street.

Researchers used a laptop in a pick-up truck, and under the supervision of transportation officials, were able to change traffic lights in an undisclosed Michigan city last May.

The study doesn't mention the name of the light manufacturer in question, or go into a lot of detail about how they did it for obvious reasons,  but the lights are apparently in use at over a hundred thousand intersections in North America.
