There seem to have been recent experimental changes in left turn signals. In Oregon. Until recent years we had the old green arrow changing to solid red so you had to sit and be frustrated when there was no oncoming traffic. We went to the solid green with sign then the flashing yellow arrow. I have now encountered a couple of flashing red (not the arrow). I think this is the safest solution as most drivers know a flashing red is the same as a stop sign. Many interpret a flashing yellow as no stop required and the solid green with yield to oncoming traffic sign only works on drivers who can read English. What can be very confusing is that all of these signals are still in use. I feel that we are being used as "lab rats" so the educated idiots can compile their statistics ( decreased/increased accidents) and justify their salaries that we pay.

We are always used as lab rats LOL. I did not notice such changes here in NOVA though. For all the years I live here, there are two standard setups: either a regular green arrow with no sign - which means no turn without green arrow; or the same arrow with an extra sign that reads something like "yield to oncoming traffic on green". That's how we have it here.
