Self-organizing traffic lights (SOTL) are considered a promising instrument for the development of more adaptive traffic systems. In this paper we explain why some well-promoted results obtained with the use of SOTL should be scrutinized and carefully reviewed. Current computational research projects based on SOTL should be reviewed too.
