What Do You Do At An Intersection Where the Traffic Lights Are Out?

Burrstone Road Stop Light
Eric Meier/TSM

This happens a few times each year, a power outage or storm will knock out the traffic lights at intersections around town. I was always taught to treat this situation as a 4-way stop. All cars come to a stop and then proceed through like there was a stop sign at each corner.

However, I’d noticed that not everyone follows this rule. Some people just slow a bit, some don’t at all. So I wondered what you would do in that situation.

Why Don't The Traffic Lights Around Town Just Go into 'Blink Mode' Overnight?
