You don't want vehicles stopping too much. Idling vehicles emit more unburned hydrocarbons...

That's funny because right now they have to idle for a whole stop-light cycle in order for pedestrians to cross safely.

as a pedestrian I find it safer and more prudent to cede the right of way to the 1 ton chunk of steel traveling at 50km/h

This is exactly the problem - we have not only 1-ton chunks of steel but also 17-ton chunks of steel traveling at not just 50km/h but over 50km/h on a road where pedestrians are legally allowed to cross without any signals. Its either a road or a freeway, it can't be both.

You could make it two way but then you'd be clogging an artery

It's been proven that this is untrue
