I live in Peoria, AZ, i.e., greater Phoenix, and we have a ton of signals where the left turn lane blinks yellow.

Scottsdale installed these in 2008 and Chandler shortly thereafter, not sure about Phoenix city limits but certainly in the valley they exist.

Having been Rocky mtn centric most of my life... Denver is a lot more similar to Phoenix, than the Rocky mtns (Denver = crowded, flat and smoggy with mtnís visible but not close)

Beyond Boulder (popular in the 1970ís)... Missoula / SLC / Bozeman / Calgary are all more RM centric than Denver.

Blinking traffic lights... a splendid idea from 10pm - 7 AM. Commercial drivers appreciate this!

They are found at almost every intersection in Las Vegas now with a single left turn lane.

Having visited Phoenix many times, the character of that city is nothing like Denver. All that they share in common is that they are large cities in the West. Phoenix reminds me a lot more of Vegas than Denver.

This. That was the first thing I thought of when visiting Phoenix.

I lived in Phoenix for 6 months and completely agree with this too.

You have green in Denver including lots of trees compared to PHX. Only green i remember in PHX was cactus and golf courses.

The other thing I found Phoenix lacking in was neighborhoods with character. There is nothing like Congress Park, Wash Park, Highland, etc in either Phoenix or Vegas. Just lots of Suburbia.

-its got 4 distinct seasons
-easy to figure west while driving
