I was not tired, nor had I been drinking, but I had seen the red lights for some time and was taken completely by surprise when I almost drove into them.
Afterwards, I tried to find the reason as to why I had not realised the vehicle was not moving. It seemed to me that it is difficult to determine at times of reduced visibility how far away a vehicle is in front of you. The only point of reference are those red lights.
Surely it is about time we adapted a rear green light so that should a red rear light be activated on a vehicle, the person behind would at once be able to take avoiding action.
