No, you missed the light by over 3 seconds. It turns yellow for a reason. At 40mph, that 3 seconds of yellow before it turned red was roughly 180ft traveled. Even taking away a second for reaction time, that's 120ft. If you can't easily stop a modern car from 40mph in 120ft, you suck at the driving.
