Advice for traffic light safety

You may think that because traffic has slowed down or even stopped at traffic lights, this is the safest place you can be on the road. But actually, there is usually a lot happening around traffic lights, and they are placed where they are to make a difficult location a bit safer for those involved. You still have to have your wits about you when you reach traffic lights though, as otherwise you could easily get into an accident.

Here are some tips on staying safe when you are at traffic lights:

  • Pause. When a light turns green, it means that you are able to start moving. However, you should always pause for a moment even if it does irritate the cars behind you, as someone may run the red light on the other side and this could lead to an accident.
  • Keep an eye out for pedestrians. On busy roads, it is very common for pedestrians to try to dash across the road if it looks clear, and as a light turns green this may be the case.
  • Look out for oncoming traffic and pedestrians if you are turning at a green light. If you are turning left you should yield to straight, and if you are turning right you should yield to pedestrians.
  • Think carefully when you see an amber light. Amber lights mean to slow down or get ready to start moving, but each should be seen as a judgement call as you decide what is safest.
  • If you come across an ambert light but you don’t have time to stop, accelerate a little to get past it before it turns red. However, be careful and watch out for other cars and pedestrians as you do so.
  • Leave plenty of space when you are stopping at a red light and be aware of the amount of space you leave between yourself and the car in front.
