Abrégé

A camera whose field of view includes an intersection of thoroughfares captures images and/or video of the intersection. Based on the captured images and/or video, a computer system surveys vehicular traffic through the intersection visible and defines both a risk zone of the intersection and a safe zone associated with the intersection. The computer system identifies that an at-risk vehicle is present in the risk zone and automatically modifying a timing of a traffic signal indicator to allow the at-risk vehicle to pass through the risk zone into the safe zone, for example by extending a green or yellow light.
