STOP !! When Traffic Lights Are Out...Treat Like a Four Way Stop Sign.

Stop, Look and Listen. Here is a good reminder for out of commission lights post Hurricane. This will be good to remember when you venture out after being cooped up a few days before and after Hurricane Sandy. Drive safely!

STOP !! When Traffic Lights Are Out...Treat Like a Four Way Stop Sign.




The Baltimore area along with the entire east coast has felt the effects of Sandy.

There are power outages in our neighborhoods and of our traffic signals.


Do you know the procedure when approaching a traffic light that is out?



 Stop Lights





        When approaching a non working traffic light..treat the intersection as though there was a 4 Way Stop Sign!

You Must STOP!!



I know you all knew this but please pass the word. 

STOP !! When Traffic Lights Are Out...Treat Like a Four Way Stop Sign.

Great advice, Cheryl.   It is frightening to watch cars drive blindly through a blacked-out traffic light!

I hate to think that there are drivers out there. . that still need to see this to learn how to drive when the power is out. .

I guess you already noticed that people are totally confused by this very standard law. Of course most have a phone in one hand and a coffee cup in the other. I guess you have powere, or I wouldn't be reading your post.

Cheryl, Today when reaching an intersection with a non working light...not ONE car was stopping. When I stopped, the person behind me blew his horn. Wish I could have flashed this post for everyone to see!

It is dangerous out there!
