You mean hanging by wires? Those are rare in New Jersey , except for Beach towns and Construction sites.

I love the "flashing beacon ahead" sign... as if the flashing lamp was not enough, there is a sign to alert you there is one, but what is a flashing beacon mean? nobody knows

Not in Skåne, many old style still around and Malmö and some other towns are replacing theirs with CPH looking overhead across the intersection lights.
They are nice and silver too if my memory is correct, might shot some pics yall.

Recently, the plans to massively make the switch-over to LED-technology for traffic lights in the State of Flanders, has been switched from "actively" to "passively". Meaning that there will still be a switch-over but the traffic lights will be replaced only if they are part of a larger project (roadworks) an accident or some kind of malfunction.

The are some new traffic rules in Russia from April 2015. Additional traffic light arrow that forbids to drive in direction, when arrow is off, even if the main light is green, now will have a red ring. This ring is also used in Belarussia and helps to notice that traffic light has an additional arrow:

Still I think the best way to inform the driver about driving direction are full traffic lights with three arows. Such traffic lights are used all over the world:

To merge two different messages within the same frame is mostly controverse: it's not only the aspect but also the position which is giving the message. And this message must be easy to comprehend for someone moving quite fast.
I would have preferred a red light in the upper position which alights when the tram signal is open. Of course the three-light-signal is better.

One thing that I find interesting is why the United States and most of Canada use orange and white pedestrian signals. The Federal Highway Administration claims that the choice of colors (rather than the seemingly more intuitive choice of red and green) is for they don't get confused with vehicular traffic signals (particularly for people with impaired vision).

If this is really the case, how come pretty much the rest of the world uses red and green pedestrian signals without any issue? Red and green seems to be much more intuitive.

Well, at least in Europe we don't have traffic lights for cars on the opposite side of the junction. Therefore it is impossible to confuse the traffic lights for cars (on your side) with the traffic light for pedestrians (on the opposite side).

The Nordic countries at least has traffic lights both near and far.

Still, pedestrian signals are almost always perpendicular to the traffic lights for vehicles, and they also lack the yellow light. So far I've never seen anyone mistake such lights for the regular ones.
