Traffic lights are supposed to help keep driving orderly, but in some cases they often create more tension than resolve the problems they are put in place for.

How do you know that the green light won't turn yellow before it's too late to slow down?

BMW believes it can help you with that. The German auto giant is the first automaker to offer in-car support for ConnectedSignals' EnLighteniOS app, which predicts when lights will change based on position and speed.

All you need to do is keep an eye on your car's infotainment display so know when it tells you whether you should hit the brakes or not.

The software is useful even if you're stopped, as it'll use your turn signals to show when a necessary light will return to green.

This is the definition of a luxury feature when you need a BMW with ConnectedDrive Services just to to see how it works, but it could be entirely worth the extra cash if it will save you from an accident or a ticket.
