When the traffic light is out, stop

August 31, 2011

The Sun would do well to remind Marylanders in this time of power outage that when one approaches an intersection where the light is out, the light is treated as a four-way stop sign. That means you come to a complete stop and yield to the right. many drivers take a gang approach and simply follow the car ahead, forcing the opposing vehicles to inch into intersections until the traffic has to stop or crash.

Four-way stop, folks. Four-way stop.
