The sheriff’s office sent a video to remind people saying, “Running a red light is dangerous and saving a minute or two is not worth your or someone else’s life.”

According to Indiana law, a yellow light is just a warning . Not a stoplight! Maybe the same deputy gave you the info above, was the one running the stop light in Bristol Thursday evening. Not only did he run the light, he did not stop the car in front of his making an illegal left turn from a straight lane. Maybe it was the cell phone in the deputy's ear that caused the traffic violations!!!!!
