Given the discussion about calculated intergreens etc, has there been any case law involving shorter intergreens?

The only reason I ask this question that the strict rule of law says:

“Vehicular traffic proceeding beyond a stop line in accordance with paragraph (1) to (4) must proceed with due regard to the safety of other road users and subject to any direction given by a constable in uniform, a traffic officer in uniform or a traffic warden or to any other applicable prohibition or restriction”

So while I accept that we have a duty to ensure that our junctions are as safe as possible, the rule of law *appears* to put the onus on the driver as to safe behaviour so far as is possible – obviously all prevailing site conditions considered.
