I know this is a 5 year old article, but I hit this on a Google search and read the comment by someone who clearly doesn't understand math.

The lights timed for 60 km/h are NOT timed for 120 km/h!!!

What your calculation is not taking into account is the duration of the red or green light. If the red or green light lasts for an odd number of seconds, then the speeder will hit a red light.

What if the green light lasts only 5 secs, then the red light lasts 35 secs? The 60 km/h car will sail through, but the 120 km/h car will be stopped.
