Near Side Traffic Signals prevent crosswalk blocking

Near side traffic signals, as used in Europe, keep cars behind the limit lines as they cant see the signal if they pull intersection, blocking the crosswalk. Grid Chicago shows some examples. The main problem, IMHO, is that the U.S. is car-centric, while most of Europe (or at least the countries and cities I’ve been to) are car-hostile, or at least, other mode of transportation friendly.
