I don't really understand. The yellow light's only purpose is to let oncoming traffic know that the red light is coming up. It does not mean to slam on your brakes to stop. You have to use your judgment.

Green Light: just pass...
Yellow Light: ******* RUN!
Red Light: Watch out.

There it is. Thats how traffic lights work.

It actually means that you have to stop if you are able to stop without endangering poeple around you.
You're only allowed to pass if you're unable to stop. The yellow phase is there, to allow cars to leave the crossing.

According to my Driver's Ed instructor, and that one cop that came to talk to us, yellow means stop if you can safely, if not go through.

The yellow light technically means "Approach With Caution" But when we're children, that's a bit complex so we are taught that it means "Slow Down"

"yellow light - the signal to proceed with caution"

It might be different from country to country, but in Canada, and I'm pretty sure the US, It means "proceed with caution"

No, my driver's textbook says "When the light changes from green to amber (yellow) it is a signal to stop if you can safely do it"
Essentially the same thing

that's what you're supposed to do, not what it means
Lol, the Yellow light is the female traffic signal.
