I first saw this in England when I visited there a couple of decades ago: the light goes from red, to red-yellow simultaneously, then to green. I hypothesized at the time that they did that for all the people driving MTs. You're in neutral at the light, and when it turns red-yellow, that's your signal to put it in first, then by the time you've done this, the light has turned green and you have saved the people around you precious nanoseconds.
Have you ever noticed that anybody driving slower than you is an idiot, and anyone going faster than you is a maniac?
