Is this the same as traffic lights?

''Đèn tín hiệu'' is fine but ''đèn giao thông'' and ''đèn tín hiệu giao thông'' are more specific.

"The signal lights"

Is this what you call the left-turn/right-turn signal lights on automobiles? Is this a Northern Vietnamese dialect? Because in southern Vietnam, we only used "đèn 'signal' (French pronunciation)."

"The beacons" has been marked wrong, but the drop down hints say both "signal light" and "beacon".
I had never considered that a "signal light" or a "beacon" would be a traffic light or a turning indicator on a car. I was thinking of something more like a lighthouse.
