I live in the county also, and I noticed that my commute was actually better than usual. Normally, the lights are so poorly timed on my route (which is with rush hour traffic) that timing them randomly would be an improvement. The timing is so bad that I actually attribute it to malice, or having some priority other than having traffic flow smoothly. When the predominant flow of traffic catches every red light, when there are major intersections with long backups for one road and no traffic on the other (long gone through the mistimed green), it's beyond incompetence. Hopefully this event shakes things up enough to get the system fixed, but I doubt it.
