Which is more aggravating: Someone runs a red light, or stops at a green light?

““I would probably say stopping at a green light, so long as they’re not running a red light after it’s been red for five seconds or so - that’s clearly putting other people in danger. But stopping on a green light aggravates me more.”
“When people run a red light because it’s more dangerous, as opposed to stopping at a green light - that causes a little bit of a delay, and might be annoying, but it’s not necessarily dangerous.”
““Stopping at a green light, because I have borderline road rage. If I’m driving, I’m probably in a hurry. And at some of the traffic lights — like at 15th and Iowa, 23rd and Iowa — if you’re stopping, I’m probably not going to make it through. And then … I’m going to be really upset.””
“Both of them, because you’re going to cause an accident one way or the other.”
