To Stop or NotSo the light turns yellow how do you know if you should stop or take your chances?

In many states if you are in the intersection when the light turns red you are in violation and could get a ticket. In all states you are to stop if you can stop safely which is the main question.

Certainly there are a number of factors to consider:

  • Is someone tailgating you and could crash into the back of your car?
  • Is it even possible to stop without skidding or ending up in the intersection?
  • What’s The Speed limit and the speed limit of the traffic coming the other way?
  • Will I terrify my passengers, (especially the elderly or young children by either decision)

You may think of other considerations but my guess is that if possible stop, it is the safer less risky thing to do… Above All Don’t Gun it!!!

Hebrews 12:13
“Make level paths for your feet,” so that the lame may not be disabled, but rather healed.
