The Importance of Traffic Lights

Did you know that the purpose of traffic lights is to prevent car crashes?  True story!

If you do happen to get into a collision at a traffic light, the most important thing to remember is to remain calm and try your best to remember what happened that may have been the cause of the accident. You will want to know who is at fault and what happened between lights.

Red lights mean stop! They do not mean, “tease the idea of going” or “go when no one is looking.”

Though there has been much debate on the subject, Yellow lights mean slow down, not speed up.

And finally, Green lights mean go.  However, it does not mean drive like the wind!  You should always look both ways before going – just in case a reckless driver is nearby.  You can save yourself some damage if you can see it coming before anything happens.
