    Default Rather than

    Which of the following options is more correct?
    When they see a red light rather than stop/
    stopping drivers go faster

    Thank you in advance.

    I'd say

    "Rather than stopping drivers go faster when they see the red light"

    But let's see what the others have to say

    Google suggests that the two forms are very close:
    "rather than stopping"- 63,500
    "rather than stop"- 52,900
    They both sound Ok to me.
