Not long ago I was driving with a 15-year-old in my car one evening on a quiet road. Nearing an intersection the traffic light switched to yellow. I hit the brakes just hard enough for an abrupt stop.
The light stayed red a long time. The teen was antsy to return home. After sitting a few more seconds, I was asked why I didn’t just run the light.
My initial reply was that the nearby police officer we couldn’t see was waiting with a ticket. My later reply was that I was obeying the law.
