Some lights are difficult to judge (stale green, can't tell if traffic has pulled up to change the light, no crosswalk signs)...and a few are located at the top or bottom of hills. Not fun to hit them.
Stop signs could be replaced with yield signs on off-ramps, particularly those with high visibility.
And I like the idea of replacing unnecessary or complex traffic signals with roundabouts. A roundabout replaced a complex intersection in Carthage, MO, and eased traffic and reduced accidents.
