    I'm an optimist and speed up. I hate when people slow in front of me expecting that it will change before they get to the intersection. /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif

    I panic, I live in a town with no traffic lights...

    I still am not sure whether the guy turning left or the guy going straight should go first at a stop light

    Depends on my mood that day. And if I see that the left-turner in the oncoming lane is going to try to turn in front of me I speed up for sure.

    I stay the same speed unless it turns yellow..the I HAMMER it! /forums/images/graemlins/peace.gif Around here, yellow means SPEED THE F UP! What's hilarious is when people in front of me hear the 4-barrels kickin' in through the 2 1/2" duals, they either speed up or move over real fast like! /forums/images/graemlins/histerical.gif /forums/images/graemlins/histerical.gif /forums/images/graemlins/histerical.gif

    Geesh that is so true /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    I keep cruisin the same speed unless it turns yellow then its kick in the 4 barrels and get through it cause there is no way I can get the big girl slowed down that quick /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif Unless I see some moron speeding up to his red light wanting to turn then I may slow down but depending on my mood I usually don't, guess big ole bumpers give me an invincible attitude.

    same speed, people that slow down REALLY anger me. I get people slowing down a lot, sometimes almost stopping for a green light, its like what are you doing? Rarely is there someone going to turn right or left or anything that would mess them up.

    Depends on things. If it's heavy traffic, I won't slow down or speed up.... just cuz sometimes if you gas it there is no room to get across then you stick out like a retard. Or if I know the intersection has a camera on it. I will slow down a bit if it's a stale green. I don't need a $350 ticket for running it. Usually if I know I can cruise across I will go for it. The traffic here sucks, so you have to play a game to drive anywhere it seems.

    can you really associate this with optomism ?

    hmm.

    i usually maintain speed when approaching green lights, but if im feeling real froggy then ill go for it and lay on her
