RECENTLY ON TOL:

One of the things that is rarely taken into account is safety of the driver running the yellow/partial red. I ride a motorcycle, and almost always I feel it is much safer for me to continue through a yellow and into a red, than it is for me to stop. If I get rear ended while on my motorcycle, I risk serious injury or death. Whether or not there is video evidence does not change this: I have to make a decision to get through the intersection ASAP, or hit the brakes hard. With reaction times, I feel proceeding is the safest.
