I was driving towards the outer ring road around Cork and the dual carriageway I was on had traffic lights at the junction with the road joining from the right. (It might have been just a right turn, I’m not sure.)
I slowed down as the lights were flashing Red (!) but the 2 cars in the outside lane didn’t slow at all and drove straight through so I did too and the cars following me drove through.
It was in the middle of the afternoon so a steady flow of traffic but not rush hour.
I’ve never seen traffic lights with a red flashing light in this country. Surely if you’re meant to drive through them, it should have just been green?
Can anyone point me in the direction of more info about what the flashing red traffic lights indicate? I can’t find anything official online.
