Well, more ideal would be cars that self-limit to the current speed 
limit. And won't go when the traffic light is red.

Then maybe the fact that traffic lights are set up to ensure good 
traffic flow would work instead of people coming out into a junction and 
sitting there, not letting people whose light is green thorugh on the 
handy cross roundabout for example.

But yes, probably not viewed as a feature by (m)any.
