A Vanity Fair article accuses London of rigging it’s traffic lights- in order to impress the International Olympic Committee (IOC) assessing the city’s bid for the 2012 games.
According to a Vanity Fair article, London’s Olympic bid team were concerned that the IOC would be put off the bid if it became stuck in traffic on the way to venues. So, a plan was hatched to track the cars carrying IOC members using GPS, then change the lights as the cars approached intersections.
International Business Times has the story. I’ve heard only a small amount of outcry on this story, from some people who say this was ‘cheating.’ What’s your take?
