How To Treat A Stoplight That's Out

Posted: Updated:

LANSING, Mich. (WLNS) - While companies work to fix power outages, police remind those driving to use caution while the street lights are off.

The Lansing Police Department is working to put up stop signs at lights without power. They want to remind everyone to treat those intersections as four way stops until the power is restored.

"If you're there first, you have the courtsey to go first; however, if you get there at the same time as another vehicle then the rule of thumb is that the person on your immediate right goes first," said Officer Robert Merritt with the Lansing Police Department on how to treat a stoplight that's out.


Lansing Police also stress the importance of driving with caution, as there are still downed wires and trees in the road.
