Some Audi cars now know how long until the light changes...

...in Dallas, Houston, Denver, and D.C. https://jalopnik.com/your-audi-can-n...gto-1823799563

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!" https://jalopnik.com/street-lights-o...hat-1796514459

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