I wouldn't mind RGB LED traffic lights. That way you can make all three lights change to the correct color (or just have one long light for minimalism)

@MutoShack the position of the lights is good for color blind drivers, and in general I think signage tries to use at least two preattentive traits (e.g. stop sign using color and shape vs yield sign)

@ben

I thought about that. The current light position is intuitive for sure, but I'm sure the single-light method could come up with something just as logical (I don't know how. I don't got the brains for details like that).

Aside from the lights themselves, I wish there was some other indication as to when I should stop. Not a big deal to be honest, but, for example, there are areas in my city where, when the sun gets low, it's almost impossible to determine which light is on!

@ben

(Of course, i suppose there is no logical reason to change the current lights other than "to make the city look futuristic"!)
