    Here in India, we now also have timers in place with the signals so that you know how much time the signal will take to change to amber.. that also helps in making the correct decision..

  2. I’ve always stated that Green has ever meant GO.
    It means Proceed If and When the Way is Clear.
    Amber (yellow) means Prepare to Stop if safe to do so, clearly if I just arrived at the light and it changes, I will continue, but if I’m a safe stopping distance behind when it changes, I’ll stop, even if the light does not turn red before I get there.
    Red has always meant stop, but sadly in Ontario it means turn right if safe to do so. The reason I say sadly, is many forget the safe to do so part and turn right on red without slowing or checking or stopping, you MUST stop whether you turn or not.

    As for the amber, I’d rather slow the tailgater down and make it through the light than be rear-ended by them though as per your recent experience.

    I was given a ticket for going through an amber light. By the officer’s own testimony and his notes, I had not only insufficient time to stop, I was also afraid of being rear-ended. The light was in an 80 kph zone and proved by engineers to be malfunctioning. None of this seemed to matter as I lost my case in Court. The amber light only endured for 3 seconds where it was supposed to be 5.
    Friends and relatives told me I was wasting my time going to Court as they always side with the officer. (who is also a liar.)
