I recently entered an intersection with a yellow light while it was raining. I was going about 35 MPH, 5 below the speed limit, and was afraid to hit the breaks and put the car on its front end in the rain. About halfway through the intersection the light turned red, and I saw an unmarked police car pull up behind me. I was never pulled over, and I do not live in the city. I'm wondering if this was a ticketable offense or if I'm just being paranoid. I'm also wondering if a police officer would be able to issue a ticket without pulling me over given the conditions.

Paranoia is understandable......
Maybe the officer understood your conditions or he didn't want to get soaked, but you could POSSIBLY have gotten a ticket for a variety of causes....but a polite and cooperative explanation would probably have sufficed....
If however, you get something in the mail, which I doubt, call me
Do you live near Easton----I had a son who went to Lafayette.....
email@example.com is e mail
Good luck to you and stay safe..
