    "I’m sorry for being late. I got stuck in every light this morning."

    Re: stuck in every light

    "at every light" - each traffic light as I drove along turned red and I had to wait till it turned green again.

    I agree with Anglika. They used a bad example at that website in my opinion.

    You are stuck at a traffic light.

    You are stuck in traffic.
