Red Light, Green Light

Yes, those traffic lights in Montgomery County were out of synch...right smack in the middle of your rush hour.

But they're back in synch now, according to Esther Bowring, spokeswoman with Montgomery County government.

Bowring says starting at 7:15 this morning, the traffic lights experienced a glitch caused--not by a computer system failure--but a leaky air conditioner back in the traffic control office.

According to Bowring, the leak tripped an automatic shutoff-- and that power outage resulted in the lights going out of synch.

Back in November, a failure of the county's computerized traffic system led to days of gridlock.
