Does Green mean Go?

Many drivers feel that a green light in an intersection controlled by traffic lights means go . Actually, ICBC defines a steady green light as "green means go only if the intersection is clear, and it is safe to do so. Victoria Driving School Inc. teaches our students to do a scan, on every intersection, regardless of the colour of the light. When going through an intersection with a green light, we stress to scan(look left, center, right center) for vehicles, cyclists and pedestrians crossing the intersection from either side and the oncoming traffic for cars turning left. Make scanning intersections a good habit that you can easily adopt in your everyday driving.
