    Default supposed to

    How are you?

    Is there a little difference between (1) and (2)?
    which is more used?
    which is more natural?

    1, When you see a yellow light, you should stop.
    2, When you see a yellow light, you are supposed to stop.

    I see little difference (if any) between the two.
