  • I don't speed up...if I can make it I just keep going otherwise I stop...easy. I used to speed through them, but kids chilled me out as a driver.
  • Slow down. Like it says.
  • slow down.
  • slow down
  • Stop..I seem to have an invisible target on my cars..even if it was still yellow when I went through it I am sure someone would run the red light to hit me..LOL
  • I'll yield and look before going on, so I slow down
  • If I'm across the walking lines I keep going, otherwise I stop
  • Usually I slow down, unless I am really familiar with the particular intersection and I know there is a long yellow.
  • slow down.
  • I slow down unless its passed the point of no return then i gun it what i am not going to lie
  • I just watched the old movie, Starman. There is a scene in which he takes over the driving, stating he had observed his host's driving carefully. After nearly colliding with an 18-wheeler, the girl yells at him and says, "What's wrong with you! That light was yellow!!!" He ryly comments, "I learned from watching you drive. Red, STOP. Green, GO. Yellow, GO VERY FAST!" That's how I interpret the yellow, too! LOL
  • S-l-o-w d-o-w-n.... what does that mean? I live in Jersey. Green means go, yellow means go, red means I'll wait for a bit til I can go.
  • Speed up |I am usually going too fast to stop safely with the idiot on my tail. In the UK Amber mean Go. ( at least everyone acts as if it does)
  • I never go over the speed limit, drives people crazy because they don't know the rules of traffic and keep the proper distance between vehicles. Many people are considering what is behind them when approaching an intersection, they think if they stop they will get hit from behind. Not to say that won't happen, but more likely you will end up running a red light or worse if you simply speed up to beat the light. If I am approaching an intersection I automatically slow a bit in case the light turns, in which case I can stop safely. If it doesn't turn then I can speed back up to the limit, but to assume the light will allow you to run safely through is sheer nonsense. And that is what most drivers do. The day you get T boned is the day you learn to be careful on the public streets.
  • I slow down, too many cameras at lights these days, don't know which ones have got them.
  • It depends on how close I am. If I think I can stop safely I will, if not, I'll speed up to get through it.
  • Every yellow light is a judgement call, and that's what I would tell the nice officer. I almost always slow down, unless I'm in a bad mood.
  • I'm a slow downer.
  • Depends on how fast I'm already going, and how close I am to the light.
  • I usually speed up because the driver behind me might have the same idea.
  • I usually slow down.
  • Slow down. I've only ever gone through 1 red light, and it was the very time that I sped up when the light turned yellow.
  • It depends on how far away I am from the traffic light.
  • Depends on how far I am from crossing the traffic light; if I'm close enough, all I need to do is maintain my speed (hitting the brakes to stop might cause someone to rear-end me). If I'm too far, then I gradually slow down; sudden stops mean more gas consumption...
  • I'm a slower downer, my driving instructor scared me into it when I was in drivers ed!!
  • If I know I can't get through before it's red then I'll slow down. But for the most part I just continue at the same speed and go through the yellow. We've got fairly long yellow lights here.
  • Speed up. Or, take my foot off the gas. I feel less guilt if I'm coasting through it.
  • It depends how far the stoplight is.
  • It depends on whether it just turned yellow and how close I am to passing through the light. For the sake of argument though I hate to wait in traffic.
  • It would depend on if I can get any part of my car into the intersection before the light turns red.As long as a part of the car is in the intersection it is not running a red light.Also there is at least a second before the light turns green for the crossing traffic.
  • Well, I use my own personal judgement. If I see it go yellow and I am close enough to make the light SAFELY then I will gas it and proceed. Also, if it is raining.... I try very hard to not slam on my breaks as I would skid making this unsafe as well. If I see the yellow come at a distance where I dont think I can speed up in time to make it then I will slow down and stop of course.
  • Usually slow down & stop. Every yellow light is a judgement call.
  • if i'm lucky and in my head, i will see it and make a easy decision, but if i'm out of it or in the "zone" then i hope i see it at all and i'll probably kick it into overdrive slam em on and end up half way out, and back in tune with reality.
  • it depends how far the light is, and how long it's been yellow for...
  • slow down and be prepared to stop
  • it depends on the distance to the light. i would rather be in the intersection while it is still yellow.
  • For own safety and others have to slow down.Jumping through yellow stoplight is very unwise and risky as you can never tell how soon it will turn red.
  • if you are close to the intersection the law books state you maintain present speed and proceed through, morons who stop at yellow lights cause accidents.
  • It always turns yellow when I am committed...so I speed up...
