Weak Signal's description 
An intelligent road-on-vehicle is technically possible and might lead to a safety enhancing infrastructure. Many feature are already technically realised - though not implemented yet. A permanent road-to-car communication could e.g. warn cars of red lights beforehand, offer an in-car countdown to green lights, gets traffic flowing and alerts drivers of stationary vehicles.
