A: A Florida attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for a week and time may be of the essence if this matter requires a response to a traffic citation. Ordinarily, with most intersections, it should be okay if you have the green light. But if this involves a traffic violation, then an attorney would likely want to know additional details about your setting - signs, traffic control devices, lane markings, and other possible factors. It isn't clear from the description if the space provided by other drivers was at a point where vehicles were clogging the intersection because they were stuck in place from the previous light cycle, or it was a different location on the roadway. If this resulted in a citation, you could reach out to a Florida traffic ticket defense attorney to discuss in more detail. Good luck
