It's funny that you have a special name for it. In Holland (at least in the
regions where I use to drive) it is common practice. On the other hand, if you
slow down before an orange/yellow light, you have a good chance to irritate the
person behind you to a fairly high degree.
The last couple of years I noticed it became also common practice, that after
the lights switch red, two or three cars will go anyway. You have a name for
that as well?
