There are already some secondary tags in use and documented for these
kinds of traffic signals:
* traffic_signals=emergency (902 uses): a normal-looking traffic
signal, often in front of a fire station, that turns red only to give
emergency vehicles right-of-way. Color details may be different (e.g.
flashing yellow instead of solid green in the bottom lens). Often a
sign mounted next to the signals states 'emergency signal'.
* traffic_signals=bus_priority/tram_priority (321/160 uses):
normally off, but whenever a bus or a tram approaches, it first blinks
yellow and then changes to red to allow or facilitate passage for the
bus or tram
