Stalling at traffic could be caused by many things - to start from fuel, fuel pump malfunction, fuel filter clogged, faulty TDC sensor, faulty MAP or Lambda sensor, faulty coils, or spark plugs.
Give it a service first - change fuel and air filters, and if the problem persists, change the spark plugs. If still no solution to the problem - have the computer checked for any faults - if the problem is from a sensor it will show up and indicate which one will need to be replaced.
