Traffic lights in regions with heavy snowfall did not have this problem until recently.

What makes present day traffic lights susceptible to this kind distributed devastation by snow (DDbS ;) ) attack?

Snow Covered Stoplights

Previously regular incandescent bulbs were being used for traffic lights.

recently in some places, a switch was done to energy efficient leds.
Unfortunately, they weren’t hot enough to melt off the snow, leading to many kaboom crashes.
