Point 2. Always. That is the point of the yellow light.

All's well that end's well, but my two-pence (English) of after-the-event wisdom:

Change down, approaching lights. You don't mention changing down, just that you were driving in fifth. Fifth means little or no engine breaking, and little or no acceleration, either of which might be necessary to get out of trouble (or get through that light before it changes ) at a signal. Third might be good.

Otherwise, on approaching any potential hazard, remove foot from accelerator and place over brake. If you need it, the foots already there. ---that's what I was taught; can't claim to always do it.
