Looks interesting, but some of the information provided is quite wrong.

for example

Differently from the UK or the USA, the amber light appears immediately before
the red, as opposed to just before the green light.


I don't know about the UK, but here in Colorado the amber light also comes before the red, and not before the green.

The sequence in the UK is:

red
red + amber (together)
green
amber
red
