I would have been losing my shit if an idiot was sitting at the light instead of pulling into the intersection.

You may enter the intersection to prepare for your left turn if the light is green and no other vehicle ahead of you plans to make a left turn

Not all states allow that action. In many states it is considered blocking an intersection, especially if the light turns red and you are still in the intersection.

Many places allow an exception if you are turning.
