Long wait times at Nampa’s stoplights are a source of frustration for local drivers.
Cars may hit multiple red lights in a row or get stuck at a long red light even when no other cars are around.
The city is aiming to curb those frustrations and boost public safety with a new traffic signal network called an “Intelligent Transportation System.”

Installing the network citywide is expected to cost $5 million, so the city plans to phase in the system
