When it shows Yellow ... you brace.
When it becomes Red... you stop.
When it turns Green... you hit the accelerator.
Imagine one day the system goes down and all the traffic lights turn Green at the same time, what would happen when everyone hit the gas pedal at the same exact moment?
So yeah, picture that and tell me if you got your info correct.
Don't worry when your life is put on hold, or you halt for a breather. You're safe. But the minute you move on along, you're putting yourself at risk.
Ironically, if you don't move on, you'll never reach anywhere. God man, who wants to be safe anyway? Safe is boring. Danger is sane. What doesn't kill you will only make you move on a little further and tougher.
They got it all wrong, didn't they? If we live by the universal colour codes, Red does not mean Danger. Green does.
This isn't a rhetorical question ... but what would you rather be doing, stay put and be safe or get going and live?
Watch the road kid...
