    This past summer (2011), “Midtown in Motion,” a high-tech traffic monitoring system, was unveiled to reduce traffic congestion in Midtown Manhattan. New technology, including video cameras, microwave motion sensors, and E-ZPass readers, was used to enable traffic engineers to monitor the congestion and find a solution to fix the problem. The goal was to allow engineers to alter traffic lights according to the traffic patterns, which would clear traffic jams with a simple push of a button. New turning lanes were also installed at 53 intersections through the program. Additionally, turn signals were added at 23 different locations to allow motorists to make a turn without pedestrian conflict.
