I say roll through the light. I've done it before.

In my part of town you casually ignore stopsigns and streetlights as you see fit depending on the circumstances. For instance, the last light i rolled was becase there was a small gang assembled on the corner all eyeing me in my car at 1am. I did a slow-and-go. Screw it, let the punks carjack the idiot who's dumb enough to stop.
