You Are More Likely To Run A Stop Light In The Right Lane

A University of Cincinnati and Ohio Department of Transportation study found:
Drivers in the left lane - the high speed lane - tended to stop for yellow lights, drivers in the right, slow lane, did not tend to stop.
Longer yellow lights tended to have more drivers running them.
If the street had a higher posted limit, there was a larger tendency for drivers to go through yellows - more drivers in 55 mph streets ran yellows than those on 50 mph streets.
18-wheelers ran yellow lights more than pickups, SUVs, light trucks and sedans. According to some police records, however, truckers weren't more likely to run or be cited for running red lights.
