Time the traffic lights

Re: traffic in Kelowna

Time the lights, time the lights, time the lights.

Why is this so difficult?   

I recall reading that they can't because pedestrian crossings will interrupt the timing.

Whose time is more valuable – the people idling their cars at the red light or the individual wanting to cross the street?

Even if the lights were timed only during rush hour it would help. They could post signs at the crosswalks, informing pedestrians they may have to wait.

Also, lower the speed limit between Water and Richter streets during rush hour to accommodate the timed lights. 
Then raise the limit the rest of the way.
