Stale Green Light

A stale green light means that the green traffic light cycle has almost ended and will change to yellow at any moment. One way to tell if it is a stale green is to look at the pedestrian crossing light, if it is flashing "do not walk" or is solid "do not walk" it could be a stale green. When you first notice the light it is green, proceed to slow down. If you did not see it change to green, you don't know how long it has been green and it could change at any time.
