I try to use traffic lighting every now and then (although for some reason I tend to only do it with Year 7s) and I make an attempt at getting pupils to self or peer mark their work; however I have yet to find a more enjoyable way of incorporating AFL techniques into lessons more frequently.
I'd really appreciate some tips and guidance on this.
Thank you in advance.

Get em doing group work. Get presentations to be reviewed by each group, the teacher and then by the group as a reflective task.
Modelling answers on the board.
Provide answers to assessments that pupils mark in advance and then again after their own assessment task. Compare with their own / their peers work. Comment on and record etc...
Visualise pupipl targets via use of the traffic lights system you mention. Do this in a spreadsheet to update progress towards a target over any given period of time. In KS3 it could be over the KS with 'red' being for below x,y or z levels / sub-levels (of end of KS target) at KS4 it could be a simple % based sheet that figured out the % that a ppil is at after each piece of work / homework and compares it with their target grade etc.... again this can be easily traffic lighted to show how close to target pupils are etc....

Also, some A-S students said at the end of their course they would like to have me tell them to redo essays to prove they could do what I had told them in my comments and get a better grade. I will try it this year, but not sure how practical this is...
