The Light doesn't Get any Greener

Am i the only driver on the island who understands traffic light etiquette?

Listen: when one is first at the red light, one watches like a hawk for the green so as to move off in timely fashion so that those 4 or 5 cars back stand some chance of getting through.

Me, I take one second max from green to get going, and it doesnt require burning rubber or neck jolt - just being awake and moving.

Everyone else seems to take the green light as the sign to a) stop chatting, b) start the engine, c) look for where they put the gear lever. By which time it's amber and they're the only ones with time to actually move.
