Two Different Choices in an Instant

You're going 30 mph down a road in town. You are three car lengths from the light when it turns yellow. Do you gas it? Or brake?

I gassed it. The other guy braked.

I don't know why it struck me as so strange. On the way into work, I was driving along side another car going the same speed. We saw the same thing and had completely opposite reactions in the same moment. I guess that's what makes us human.
