It really depends on the situation

In some places, traffic lights do help with traffic flow. In others, such as the example in this article, they make things worse. It's a case-by-case thing.

Also, traffic lights are not tyranny (although they are inefficient and unnecessary at times). We want freedom, not chaos.

“It is not our part to master all the tides of the world, but to do what is in us for the succour of those years wherein we are set, uprooting the evil in the fields that we know, so that those who live after may have clean earth to till." -J.R.R. Tolkien
