Traffic Tip: Traffic light malfunction tip

The question was asked recently, "What do I do if I pull up to an intersection and none of the traffic lights are working?"

If a motorist approaches a traffic light that is not working, he must stop.

But he may proceed through the intersection after stopping and making sure the road is clear.

For more information on this law, see Texas Transportation Code Sec. 545.151.
