Ned and Grace are driving to work one morning.  They left the house late and now they think they will be late for work.  Grace is quite nervous because she has a big meeting first thing in the morning.  As the car approaches an intersection, the light turns yellow.  Grace tells Ned to...
floor it.
Grace does not want Ned to slow down and prepare to stop for the red light that will follow the yellow light.  Grace does not want to have to wait at the red light so she tells Ned to hurry through the intersection before the light turns red.
