I know the lights here from a lot of experience. Best possible scenario is to never slow down, while gliding down all of the very slight declines east of my home. Next best scenario is to be able to coast to the light and have it change before you are slowed down by all the rabbits who slammed on their brakes when they raced up to the red light.

After that you are wasting energy the instant you touch the brake pedal.

I used to worry about people running into my rear end when I applied the brakes. Now the only time I worry is when I get forced into a rapid stop by a tripped light that catches me just about perfectly wrong. I won't post my comments here.
