What should you do if the traffic lights 200m in front of you turn red? Should you (a) slow down and stop? Or (b), accelerate hard, shoot the red light long after the pedestrians have started crossing and then panic-brake to a frightened halt mere inches in front of a pregnant woman?
If the answer is (b), you had a lucky escape this morning. Unfortunately the various people who saw you screech to a halt a few inches from my wife were too worried about making sure she was okay to get your registration plate or drag you from your car by the testicles and give you the kicking you truly deserve.
