What to DO When a Traffic Light at an Intersection Fails


Hi there smart drivers - behind me here you can see that the traffic lights are flashing red.

So when a traffic light becomes a flashing red, it becomes a four-way STOP, which can be a bit confusing to traffic.

So when you're coming up to a traffic light that is flashing red and is obviously malfunctioning, be careful for other traffic because most people are going to not recognize it as a four-way STOP.
