\" \" Traffic becomes way more frustrating when the red light at your intersection never changes to green. GLJones/Getty ImagesYou pull up to a four-way stop, and the light is red. The light is stuck on red. If that doesn't work and you decide you've waited long enough (and you're sure there aren't any other vehicles around), you can chance it and run the red light. Of course if you find it's the same light that's getting you stuck every time you ride to work, find another route with stoplights that are less persnickety.
