Do you cross the road when the red light is on?

May 7, 2016 1:52pm CST
If there are no cars around , will you walk across the roads even the red light is on, or you will wait until it turns to green light? How about other people ? Do they walk across the road and feel strange on you if you wait for the green light? How long do you need to wait for the green light? Do you get enough time to corss the road? What if you are driving, will you keep going at the red light if there are no one on the road?? I usually walk cross the road even the red light is on if i do not see any cars coming, but even in the green light,I need to be in a hurry because the drivers here can also cross the roads when the pedestrian green light is on, I feel a bit dangerous even the drivers will not really move when they see you crossing the road, but if I walk across the road slowly, some rude drivers may stare at me ..

I would never drive through a red light but I'll cross road on a red if I'm walking.

Road saftey is important and we can be safe on the road if drivers or pesdetrians follow trafiic rules.

All I can do is laugh. I will walk if the green light is there and nothing is coming.. other then that I will wait for the green light.

No. Just, no. But sometimes I see chickens crossing against the light. They're trying to get to the other side, you know.

Yep, I'm guilty of that. I know I shouldn't but so many people do it that I end up following along.
