If you live in or around Bowling Green you've probably traveled on Scottsville Road at some point and have noticed the congested traffic.

You can blame it on slow drivers, population growth, or traffic lights, but a study by USA Today reports that ideal management of traffic lights would cut delays by 20 percent, reduce travel time by up to 25 percent, and would reduce gas consumption by 10 percent.

And who said that's the problem?

The Transportation Department said they check the traffic lights on Scottsville Road each week for trouble, but drivers we spoke to are still unhappy.

We did the math and put the traffic to the test.

To watch WBKO's experiment be sure to watch the video player above.
