Looks like great idea .. hopefully it catches on.
I am curious as to how it would work out when the traffic crossing over backs up into the the intersection because of the dual red light set up.

I guess it must work fine, but it is easy to imagine traffic making the "X" stopping inside the crossover when the light further up turns red. If it is possible for that to happen, it would seem nightmarish.
