Then again you could always treat traffic signals as in real life.....if they have been green for a long while before you get there , expect them to change and be ready to stop !!

I just drive at or below the speed limit whenever I am around traffic signals. (IRL, of course...) If you are within 100 feet or so of a signal when the light turns yellow, you can't stop all that easily. But then again, our signals have countdown timers on the pedestrian Walk \ Don't Walk crossing lights, so I can see when green is going to turn yellow long before I get to the corner. When I get to that 100 feet or so of a signal, if there is no number on the Walk \ Don't Walk light, the light isn't going to change in the next ten seconds. If there is a number higher than 4, I keep going as I know I have time to get through the intersection before the light changes. If it's below 4 I hit the brakes because I know I don't.
