To my fellow Lakewooders,
With all the recent traffic lights taken out from accidents, I thought I might share what one is to do if you must go through an intersection with a blackout.
I had to look up the answer as they don’t cover this in driving school!
If a light is out it must be treated as a four way stop sign. That means you have to come to a full stop at the white line and wait your turn to go.
This is all the more important at busy intersections, especially when there is more than one lane. If you are not sure whose turn it is, try to make eye contact with the other drivers at the line, and take it slow. Of course this means that you cannot be on your phone!
