There has been a considerable amount of confusion expressed and witnessed, over what to do when the Traffic Lights are flashing, or not working when an electrical failure occurs.

The flashing amber light means proceed with caution into and through the intersection.

The flashing red light means you must come to a complete stop and proceed only when it is safe.

When a power failure occurs and the traffic lights are not on, yield the right of way to any vehicles already in or entering the intersection.  All directions of travel must treat the intersection as if it had all way stop signs, until the traffic lights resume operation.

Thank you for your cooperation.
