Some Audi cars now know how long until the light changes... Dallas, Houston, Denver, and D.C.

Of course, people say to just watch the crosswalk timer, and others went into a rage because sometimes those count to zero and then restart, because nobody hit the button.

That seems like a poor design.

In the Phoenix area, I have only seen that on side streets, so I only slow down if I see someone waiting. So far, so good.

Here Jalopnik points out that Audi is introducing yet another vulnerability, because people have a strange hobby of saying "They will be hacked!"

I always think they sound like Admiral Ackbar when they do that.
