This guide provides information on traffic lights sequences at various systems found on UK roads, along with an explanation on filter lights and the rules and legal regulations that must be complied with at traffic lights. UK traffic lights sequence explained. Red traffic light A vehicle must stop just behind the white stop line at traffic light.
Traffic lights were first introduced to London in 1868. Traffic lights use of the sequence red, yellow/amber, and green are used to give the right of way to road users and pedestrians. Traffic light sequence: Green light illumination allows traffic to proceed in the direction indicated.

In such a case, you should be prepared to stop and give way. Advanced Stop Lines. Some traffic light controlled junctions have advanced stop lines.
A Beginner’s Guide to Traffic Signal Timing Feb 17, 2017 It is Monday morning, and you are trying to beat traffic on your way to work when all of a sudden it seems like the whole traffic engineering world is conspiring against you by ensuring you hit red light after red light.
Oh dear. Sorry about this. This isn't at all what's supposed to happen. This is exactly the sort of thing that can cause stress and anxiety. Those are not good things.
