* I'd like to see an intersection where motorists had
* to get out and push a button to signal the light.

There are many such intersections of small streets with Broadway in Vancouver, BC. While these "flashing green light" signals were originally intended for pedestrians, motorists discovered they could get out and use them too to get a light where they could make a left turn. I believe a clarification of law back in the 90's actually made it illegal for motorists to get out and push the button.

The "flashing green" signals in Vancouver certainly cause a lot of confusion among American visitors when they find out that perpendicular traffic has nothing more than a stop sign .
