To be fair, whether the sequence was red to amber to green or red to
red plus amber to green doesn't make any practical difference so is
unnecessary information. It only matters in quiz shows.


No, it matters when you're approaching an amber light - does it mean
slam on the brakes because it's about to be red, or just lift off the
throttle because it's about to be green? Bearing in mind that the
amber before red means "stop", not "if you're lucky the red won't show
until you're over the line".


Is this a joke or a troll?

I'm not sure many box drivers know this.




I am certain the majority of cyclists are not even aware of traffic
lights. Let alone what the different signals mean.

Look at the thread 'Cyclists never stop at red lights'.
