This occurs when you are driving on the street and your mind looks past the first traffic light to the second one, thus resulting you driving through a red light because you see the green one ahead. The brain's subconscious is focused on the second green light ahead as opposed to the red light you are about to pass through. It happens more frequently when the lights are close together.
TOM: Yo man, slow down you are about to blow through that light.
CARL: Sorry man, thanks for telling me, I didn't even see it. I was suffering from second-light syndrome.
