What yellow is telling you.
The yellow traffic light is the beginning of red. It is not the end of green.
It is red's early warning system.
Yellow yells 'Hey, now is not the time to keep going.'
Yellow does not tell you to 'gun it!', 'go really fast', 'bet you can make it.'
In fact, it is screaming out the exact opposite...
'Stop. It's not safe, don't enter the intersection.'
Yellow is telling you that if you run it, you can be fined. And you risk a crash.
Run the yellow. Risk a crash. Risk a fine.
