黃燈

上星期寫了一篇《必會衝黃燈》後,收到許多讀者的電郵,

其中一位是工作認真的蔡醫生,她傳來法律條文:

Where an amber light signal is provided it shall, when shown alone,

indicate the prohibition that vehicular traffic shall not proceed beyond the stop line or,

if the stop line is not for the time being visible or there is no stop line,

beyond the light signals,

except in the case of any vehicle which when the light signal first appears is so close to the stop line

or light signals that it cannot safely be stopped before passing the stop line or light signals.

法律用的英文很奇怪,總是長長的,以上一句,便有八十五字。

我會考那年,英文作文的規定字數是二百,若少了便要扣分;

如果那時我懂得英文法律,只寫三句,便成一篇文章了。

原來有一個情況下衝黃燈不算犯法,就是黃燈剛亮著時,

你的車已很接近停車線,而你不可能把車安全地停在白線前,

你就可以駛過黃燈。

本版有大律師和英語老師,若我對條文理解有錯,希望各位指正。
