For sure keeping it in gear saved me once. Light turned orange, I check my mirrors and start getting on the brakes, I come to a stop at the white line just as the light turns red, right at that moment I heard tires behind me, I check my mirror again and see a car coming, I knew that the cross traffic had not started moving so without even thinking I was hard on the gas again and ran through the intersection. Once on the other side of the intersection I looked back and the car looked like it was still hard on the brakes just to be able to stop at the white line.

It scared the out of me, glad I still had it in gear.

Sticking to the left and right should help. But thats where you should be anyway. At an intersection, if youre sitting in the middle of the lane, then youre parked in the oil and grime left from other cars at the intersection.
Think about it that way and you'll always end up on the sides of the lane and not the middle.
