Traffic safety vs. ener. conserv.

LED traffic lights save alot of energy, but, they result in reduced safety in the winter. The old incandescent lights would get hot from operation and keep ice and snow off. But the new LED lamps do not produce any heat. Ice and snow can build up that can reduce or eliminate a drivers ability to see what color the traffic signal is supposed to be.
