You were on your way back from celebrating your son’s graduation,
and yes, you did have a few drinks. But that was way earlier in the day,
and you stopped after 2 drinks and spent the rest of the night drinking
water. You know your limits and you knew you had to drive home so you
did not take any chances. However on the way home, you were coming to
an intersection at precisely one of those moments where the green light
turns to yellow, and you can’t tell if you have enough time to slow
down or speed up. If you brake to avoid passing through the red, it’ll
be a hard brake and you even fear skidding out of control. If you speed
up, it might turn red before you go through it, technically putting you
at risk of running a red light. Of course there is never enough time in
this situation to process all of your options, and since it’s the
middle of the night and no one else is around, the choice to roll through
and risk having some of that red light flash across your face doesn’t
seem too high.
At that moment not only red, but red and blue, start flashing all around
and now you are in a different kind of trouble because the police officer
not only saw you run a red light, but also arrests you for driving under
