Stop at the Yellow Light or Speed Up Through It?

What do you tend to do?

Sadly, I tend to speed up.

  • Speed up unless I cannot make it before it is red. I want people driving to move move move as much as possible. And if you get stuck at that light, don't take off from it at 4 MPH. Other drivers get my blood BOILING! Touchy subjuect, so Ill shut up!

  • Actually depends on the situation. There are times I will speed up, when I know I won't be able to stop. Other times I will stop and that's when I know I can stop. I think I stop more often than I speed up but I couldn't say for sure.

  • Depends on how far I am and if I'm running late.

  • I stop, I sped up once and ended with a car that looked nothing like the car I went in with. You never know what the other drivers on the road are planning on doing (like turning left into you simply because the light turned yellow).

  • Depends how far away I am from the light when it turns yellow and if my daughter is with me. If she is then I will break, because you never know, but if I am alone I and I'm not too far away from the light I speed up.

  • I must say I have learned to stop. In our city we have "red light cameras" for those who sped through lights right before it turns red. One time having to pay a ticket was enough for me.
