We receive numerous calls from concerned citizens when one of the traffic lights in town is not functioning properly. Most of these calls are reporting the incident to us. There are other calls from motorist, who are confused about what their responsibility is as a driver and what they should do.
If a traffic light is not functioning properly or flashing red, this is the recommended course of action. Treat each traffic light as a four-way stop, with the driver on the right having the right-of-way. Enter intersections only when it is safe to do so, using turn signals to let other motorists know of your intentions. Watch out for and obey any Police Officers or Public Works Officials who are directing traffic within intersections.
