Red, amber or green? Millions of British drivers do not know the sequence of traffic lights.Fri, 13/04/2018
It’s likely that whenever you get in the car, your journey will involve a traffic light junction. Other than knowing that red means stop, and green means go, are you confident in stating the sequence of light that a traffic light shows?
Daily Mail reports:
Millions of drivers do not know the sequence of traffic lights, a study suggests.
An online quiz asked motorists which signal follows a single amber light.
More than one in ten wrongly thought green came next, and 13 per cent mistakenly believed it would then turn to red and amber together.
Less than three quarters correctly said it leads to a red light.
In another question, more than half had no idea cursing at a fellow motorist could result in a fine of 75 per cent of your weekly income.
And just half of drivers knew you could use your mobile phone at the wheel to call 999.
The quiz was created by car dealership firm Jardine Motors Group.
Only 2 per cent of the 1,558 drivers who took part got all 12 questions correct.
Understanding the highway code in great detail, including the sequence of traffic light colours, is something all drivers should take very seriously.
