Yellow plate stoplights seem to be disappearing for whatever reason, being replaced by black on black plate stoplights in my area. I have stated before that yellow plated stoplights are more visible during low light and foggy conditions during daylight hours than black plated stoplights.

Florida has a lot of horizontal. I'd say it's about 50/50.

In ABQ they are nearly all horizontal; only the lights for the turning-lanes are vertical.

Well you must have not been paying attention. My friend lived there for a while and I visited often. Nearly all horizontal. Dallas also is not fully horizontal but mostly.

I moved to Austin from Waco last year and so far within the city limits I have not seen a vertically mounted overhead traffic signal.

For those that like antique stoplights, Michigan hits the jackpot. Many areas still have intersections and stoplights common to most of America in the 1960s and 1970s.

I had never heard of a horizontal light until I started checking out Houston on streetview. Seems like a very odd practice. I've been to Florida and have most likely seen them there, but them being horizontal had never crossed my mind.
