"A STEADY YELLOW LIGHT tells you a steady red light will soon appear. If you are driving toward an intersection and a yellow light appears, slow down and prepare to stop. If you are within the
intersection or cannot stop safely before entering the intersection, continue through carefully."

PA Driver's Manual
Chapter 2.

In reality, it means
A) stomp on the gas pedal
B) activate the nitrous oxide
C) activate mirror shields over the license plate and all windows to thwart the red light camera.
D) If necessary, lift the safety cover and punch the BIG RED BUTTON to activate after burners and fly over the car/truck/building/departing airliner in front that's slamming on the brakes.

"It was so much easier to blame it on Them.
It was bleakly depressing to think that They were Us.
If it was Them, then nothing was anyone's fault.
If it was us, what did that make Me?
After all, I'm one of Us. I must be.
I've certainly never thought of myself as one of Them.
No one ever thinks of themselves as one of Them.
We're always one of Us.
It's Them that do the bad things."

--Terry Pratchett

To know how other people behave takes intelligence, but to know myself takes wisdom. To manage other people's lives takes strength, but to manage my own life takes true power. If I am content with what I have, I can live simply and enjoy both prosperity and free time. If my goals are clear, I can achieve them without fuss. If I am at peace with myself, I will not spend my life force in conflicts. If I have learned to let go, I do not need to fear dying. ~ John Heider
