When you make a right turn to get off of a highway onto a side street. You know, for highways that aren't limited-access (state highways, US highways, etc).

 

Here almost everything like that is signaled (and therefore you have to stop).

Only if the signal is red.  

 

EVERY intersecting street has a traffic light???   I find that hard to believe unless you're only talking about the center of town.

There are far too many of those intersections around here to put up stoplights--the state and US highways intersect with section roads all over the state; having a stoplight at every intersection would take thousands of stoplights (although that hasn't stopped my hometown from trying).

True about the red light.

 

You haven't been to south Florida apparently haha.

 

Obviously in neighborhoods, you'll have stop signs or 2-way stops, but yeah I'd say the majority of intersections have lights.  Maybe I'm misunderstanding what he meant by turning off a highway, but pretty much everywhere here is developed......we don't really have many rural areas (unless you go west toward the everglades) because the population is limited to a roughly 10-20 mile wide area up/down the coast with the Atlantic to the east and the everglades to the west.

 

Furthermore, the roads are setup in a grid pattern, as there are no real natural formations (mountains, etc.) to go around, meaning more intersections.

In the Atlanta suburbs I'd say only half the intersections are signaled.   Many of the roads are subdivision entrances and only the larger ones have signals.  Other than major highway intersections.

That must be a photochop--one of those lights is green.
