Please remember... If the power is out at a traffic light:
❌The "bigger" street DOES NOT have the right-of-way.
❌The street with more traffic DOES NOT have the right-of-way.
❌The street with the higher speed limit DOES NOT have the right-of-way.
❌Getting to the intersection first DOES NOT give you the right-of-way.
The only appropriate action when approaching a signalized intersection without power is to treat it as a 4-way stop sign. That means:
✔️STOP, even if you don't see anyone on the intersecting street!
✔️STOP, even if you are in a "main road" and the intersection is a side street!
✔️STOP, even if you are going faster than people on the intersecting road!
✔️STOP, even if you get to the intersection before cross traffic!
Sorry to have to spell this out in such detail but it's mind-boggling how many people still don't understand how this works.
No matter which direction you're driving, how fast you're going, or which street you're on... If there's no power to the signal, everyone must come to a full and complete STOP just like if there were a stop sign in place.
