Why has this region removed all options from the traffic planning toolbox except traffic lights? They are so scared of crosswalks or any other 'yield' solution? Thus it's a binary decision : traffic light yes or no.

And even then, the traffic lights are poorly done as in the example in this article.

That's why we hear NO so much - the traffic engineers have been restricted to having no tools at all except highway configuration. Either a traffic light, or nothing at all, leaving people to jaywalk. I want to smash my head against the wall in frustration at this highway engineering approach to residential city streets. It does not fit any community. It sucks.
