Hi there!! I too cannot stop running lights!! (I rarely run the stop
signs).. To me when the light is yellow it just means to HURRY!!!! So
far I've been OK with no tickets or getting pulled over but if you ever
get pulled over by a male police officer just act dumb. I knew my safety
check expired and I got pulled over and acted like I didn't know
which sticker was the safety check one!! He let me go!!!
Hee, hee, hee!!

Hi! I'm a traffic light violator...
Anyway, I bet you all think that you're the only ones who break the law,
huh? Well, guess what? There are billions and billions of us who do
just that...ordinary people who got it in their system to be a rebel and
run the light!
All I can say is that I'm guilty! Whenever I see the light turn yellow,
I just step on the pedal and zoom past the light...I never really go a
lot over the speed limit, but when it comes to running the light, I speed
like a manic!
But hey, as long as I stop when the light is red, it's cool...
Word of advice though, when you wanna run the light, make sure you don't
time I see a yellow light from far away, I would speed
up my car to try to make it. Of course by the time I got to the
light, it has already turned red, but I still keep going. I
figured if I press on my brake, the car behind would hit my car.
I don't like to stop when I see the yellow light or the STOP
sign, they just delay my schedule.
I am one of those people that can't seem to stop at stop signs!
There is one stop sign at the corner of my block near my house and I
can't seem to come to stop over there. It's probably because there
is hardly any traffic since this is a residential area. Anyway I
know I'm not the only out there doing California Stops at stop
Abe CabuagYour topic is so true! I run stop signs and lights all the time.
But unlike some drivers I know, I avoid being caught,(knock
on wood). I have a technique for running stop signs and lights,
especially stop lights. I got this technique from observing other
drivers who ran stop lights and got caught. Everytime
someone wants to run a stop light, they speed up while the light is
yellow. That's the common mistake. If there's a police in the area, he/she
will pulled you over since it may seem that you are in a rush, speeding,
or driving recklessly. What I like to do is to maintain the speed
limit or even slow down a bit so it seems like I'm not aware that the stop
light has already changed to yellow and is ready to change to red. So
the next time you think about running a stop light, try this technique
and don't blame me if you get caught.
when you run a stop sign or light? Guilty?
Happy? Ashamed? Angry?
What happened? Were you caught? Nearly
ran head-on to someone?
Cleanse your soul!
