    Default What's wrong with the driver, was he/she want to cross it?

    When a car stopped in front of traffic light without any signal. (light turned green)
    "What's wrong with the driver, was he/she want to cross it?"

    How to says the driver is going to cross the traffic light or not?

    I'm sorry, Jason, but I don't understand the question.

    Do you mean something like:
    Doesn't he realize the light has turned green?
    Is he going to go?
    I wonder if he's waiting to make a left.

    (In the US, you'd wait a moment or two and then honk your horn. He's probably texting and didn't notice the light changes. I hate that.)
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    Is he going to go? That's what I mean.
