Yeah sure, we had 2 accidents this year in our fleet relating to the "green light means its my right to go". 1 a sales men who moved slowly across pedestrian crossing even thought people were still crossing. He gently hit one of people in the side of leg, his claim "the lights was green and he could go". But of course, you cannot drive in to people, even if they go on the red or amber light to cross the road you only proceeding if safe to do so. He no longer works for the company, evidence collected by his own blooming dash cam! Convicted of dangerous driving!

Likewise one our utility cans went across a junction clipping the back of a car that was crossing in front of him. Car was clearly beyond the line at his set of lights (not a yellow box junction) so it was his right of way to go. Our can driver didn't care, claiming the green light meaning he could go, obviously not the case as other traffic still had to complete its turn.

Its a funny old world out there!

Can I ask which company it is you work for? :)

so green does mean go then. You say only if your not going to block a junction but also say only if it's clear, surely it should be clear if all drivers follow the "don't block a junction rule"?

what do green lights mean then?
Proceed, only if safe to do so! Ensuring all other legal obligations are clear, like traffic has cleared the junction, your not going to block the junction etc.
