Yellow lights flashes faster and faster until solid

You are approaching a green light going the speed limit, yellow comes on while green is still on. Cars closer to light know they have five seconds to a solid yellow and six to a red and do not have to jam on the breaks due to a quick yellow. Those further back can better gauge if they will make the light or not. Benefits are less fuel emissions, less break wear, greater safety at lights. Aggressive driving to beat the light could be more strictly enforced and at a higher penalty. All this would require is a change in the lighting controls, and a quick education program.
