We've all done it. The light is yellow. You're in a hurry. In your mind your thinking 'floor it!' You accelerate and the light turns red and you blow through it. Yup, that's usually how it goes. In Maine, you can get away with that from time to time...as long as there isn't a police officer sitting near by. But, in New York City it's a tad different. I have recently discovered this.
