The Los Santos Transport Traffic Control System is a computer program that controls the traffic flow and traffic lights of the city of Los Santos. It uses designed algorithms and video feeds from intersections to control and manipulate traffic lights and control traffic conditions to allow a more efficient and effective flow for the city. It is based of the Los Angeles Department of Transportation.
The system is considered a high security program due to the ability to control the city's traffic and therefore requires great skill to hack into the system. A lesser skilled hackers will cause lag in the traffic lights making manipulation of the traffic lights more difficult. The layout of the system shows a map of Los Santos with the intersections and the current traffic signal status (Either red or green). The operator can zoom in on the intersection and click on the particular set of lights to switch them from green to red or red to green.
The system was important when doing the subtle approach in the mission The Big Score in Grand Theft Auto V as Franklin was responsible for manipulating the traffic conditions to prevent Merryweather from finding Michael and Trevor with the gold in the armored vans.
- This part of the mission in The Big Score is based of the movie, The Italian Job from 2003 where the hacker hacks into the Los Angeles Automated Traffic Surveillance and Control Operations Center to control the traffic lights forcing a gold filled armored van to go where the thieves wanted it to go.
- The logo lettering and font is similar to the Los Santos Transit.
