So, I'm sitting at a red light (this is US), waiting for the green light. It didn't happen after a minute or so, so I drove through the intersection anyway! Why?

Well, why not, if the lights are not functional? Is it the middle of the night, with nobody around? Is someone directing traffic?

Oh, are you in a car, rather than a bike, say? (Just covering all bases.)

Sorry, that question has already been asked and answered.
Were you in an emergency situation? Were you in the way of an emergency vehicle and had to cross in order to get out of their way?

Does the red light come from: a traffic light relevant to your lane? A different traffic light? Brake lights? Other car lights? Other electric lights? Fire? Natural light?
Was the green light you were waiting for supposed to come from a [same list as above, minus the brake light]

Did you drive through the intersection when your traffic light turned green?

Were you waiting for a light to come on for a business? an Open sign? something like a "Fresh Donuts" light?
