Ever since moving to the US I've been struck by the way the lights work here, particularly the quick change from red to green. In the UK the lights go from red, to red and yellow, and then green. The reverse being the same as the US green to yellow to red.
I have no idea if there is a difference in accident stats but it does create a transitional phase from stop to go, perhaps allowing for you a second to check and see if the intersection is clear.

Interesting! I wonder if there is difference in accidents instances with the UK vs. USA methods.

I've driven in major cities in Mexico. There, the traffic lights are treated as optional suggestions. :)
