traffic_signals=* may be used in combination with highway=traffic_signals to give details about the type or function of traffic signals.

Special traffic signals can be used as landmarks for navigation. For example, it may be easier to find a junction if you know there's a blinker there.



Possible rendering: remove one of the three lenses from the normal traffic signal symbol.
