...and they're green. You're in primary, as you're going straight on and you're not going to let some muppet left hook you at the junction ahead. You're hoping that the lights stay green, but you're going at a speed that will allow you to stop if they do change, so said muppet is getting closer and closer, obviously wanting to accelerate so that he's sure to get through the lights. Just as you're going to cross the line, like you're as far ahead as the cycle stop box, the lights change to amber. You obviously can't stop now, you go straight on. Why is it that the car behind (which can easily stop) always goes through the lignts, which are by now usually red? And the car behind that will as often as not do likewise? Is there some unwritten rule that states that if you only just missed the lights because of a bicycle in front of you, they don't really count at all and you can floor it and go through at red? Sorry to bring up what might seem a trivial complaint, but this has happened three mornings in a row at the same junction, and on each day the first car behind me was turning left (so would have left hooked me if allowed to pass earlier). I don't feel endangered by this, but the idiot motorists following me are going to come to grief, sooner or later, and they're likely to hurt someone else too.
