someguy started yelling at me when i stopped at a yellow yesterday.
it was a safe stop, and a busy intersection(hurontario and britannia) so i decided to stop. guess he was in a rush to get to the same gym i was going to.

i will go thru a yellow if i have to or if i dont believe a quick stop is safe.
never run a red thou.

Nah, never. The intersections where the light takes 2-3 min to turn, there are cars and people any time of day and night. The ones that don't have anyone after dark, take like 10 seconds to change back, big ass deal.

Not everywhere.
I've waited 4-5 minutes for some lights with no one in sight. I've also run those same lights, depending on the mood, and situation!

Please tell me the intersection where you have to wait 4-5 minutes for the light to change.

I've waited at several different lights for more then 7mins, it was during morning rush hour, I was the first at the intersection, I waited & waited, 7mins later I looked behind & there was a dozen cars also waiting. Another light I waited for a long time is on Wilson just west of Bathurst, waited almost 10mins & there wasn't anyone on that street.

Did you actually time it (don't mean a stopwatch or anything, but notice the clock before and after) or is this a gut feeling? I've never come across an intersection like that. I don't think I'd run the red but do the right turn/uie thing cause that's nuts.
