red light cameras are getting used more which means yellow lights are being made shorter to get more revenue. now you have to try to stop at yellow or it's $50

I would of got out and broke his windows plus ydi for suddenly stoping at the yellow light , I'm sure you could have made it if the person behind thought they were gonna make it ad well.

You idiots are all wrong, BTW... Green means "proceed when safe to do so" Yellow means "if youare in the intersection, get out of it, and if you are not yet in the intersection, stop" Red means "stop" Lol, congrats OP for knowing proper driving, and FYL

I would say it might be the op's fault, depending on how quickly they stopped, especially when it's a yellow light. yellow lights mean slow down, not stop, and not speed up

not always in Oregon. Portland police will ticket you for going through a yellow light especially if it turns red before you get through the intersection. driver behind probably was tailgating op.

no if you want to change the light flick that one thingy really fast and it will read that as the same things the firetrucks use and stuff. but it's illegal lol so uh don't get caught :) lol "flick that on thingy really fast" x) I'm so immature.

136- it shouldn't matter how fast the op stopped if the guy behind him was following a safe distance behind and not tailgating him the guy would have had time to stop. also if he was paying attention to the road and signals he would have noticed at almost the same time as the op that the light had changed. or if the other guy had left an "out" he could have switched lanes quickly to avoid an accident.

Jimmy, running a yellow light & getting rear-ended are not arrestable offenses. you can be arrested if you have a warrant, say, and you were pulled over for running a light. but not for minor traffic offenses. usually you are issued what's called a "ticket."

hopefully your inssurance costs don't go up because of this. unless you can get him to pay the bill go through the courts but don't charge him! because if you don't charge him than your inssurance won't have to pay, he can just pay the bill on it. but yeah if you charge him than yeah. but I remember this happening to me once you just gotta pay it in the time period they give you. so do that op. sorry I'm rambling. I am half asleep.

actually if you get rear ended, its their fault no matter what. BECAUSE the rule is you should be far enough away from a car to be able to suddenly stop safely. tailgating is a ticketable offense for this exact reason.

You deserve it for stopping at a yellow light... You yeild.

I think some people may be confusing a flashing yellow-- one that does not ever turn red or green-- with a three-color intersection signal. At the first you do indeed yield or slow down, depending on the situation.

Well you kinda deserve it. Yellow means "slow down", not "stop". It sucks that he's uninsured though.

yellow light doesn't mean slow down lol, it means you should stop if you can, the yellow light is there in case you're too close and you have too much speed to stop, so it gives you a brief time to pass safely in that case, but if you CAN stop, you HAVE to stop. People that see the yellow light and see it as the last chance to pass and accelerate instead of break are actually breaking the law.

Plus even if he stopped when he shouldn't have, he still in no way deserves it, whenever someone rear-ends a car it's always HIS fault, it was his responsability to keep a safe distance from the car in front of him. I really hope that they didn't give you a license.

Oh, well thanks for bringing that up. It just so happens that I have epilepsy, and last month I had a really bad seizure, and I had to go to the hospital so I wouldn't die. As a result, I can't drive until October, because I now have to wait 6 months. Thanks for reminding me of that though. You wanna make fun of my seizures and anxiety disorder while you're at it?

84: I just messed around with it. I've gotten a lot of comments about it from a lot of people. Some really like it, and some think I was trying to look like the mona lisa, which I wasn't. 85: Yes, it's nice to have a good amount of comments, but 2 of them were writen by a bitch, who insulted me, and reminded me of a lot of shit. My life's already fucked up enough.

Sorry to hear that darkmis. Medical issues blow, especially when they keep you at home. Been there-- that's why I'm on here so much lately :( Your posts have seemed kinda down lately. Pay no attention to the anonymous insults; it's the Internet. People overreact. I doubt she'd have said that if she knew.

Wow, "darkmis". Attention whore much? Someone on FML saying they hope you don't drive based on your apparent ignorance of the rules of the road is OBVIOUSLY a jab at your epilepsy. And are you seriously complaining about being kept off the road for your own safety, as well as the safety of those around you? 6 months isn't a particularly long time. Thanks for sharing, though, crying in public just makes you ever so myserious and fascinating.

Wow 194-I bet you're a total badass, aren't you? I'd LOVE to see you try and say that to my face though. I seriously doubt you'd have the guts. Stop trolling around and grow the fuck up! And thanks 162, and 133 :-)

Darkmis, how is criticizing you for not knowing what a yellow light means a jab to your epilepsy? HOW THE F*CK could I even know that you suffer of some medical conditions, and even if I would've known, it still doesn't mean crap, you CAN know driving regulations, epilepsy doesn't prevent you for having the common sense to know what a yellow light is, nor does it prevent you to learn something about driving. And I wasn't even making fun, I was genuinely upset of the fact that so many people have no idea what a yellow light means, it just so happened that I replied to you and not someone else saying the same stupid thing.

If he doesn't have insurance, that most likely means he doesn't have a lot of money, so taking him to court would be pointless. You can't take blood from a stone.
