City Traffic Signals During Power Outages

The City reminds drivers that if they encounter a dark intersection where the traffic signals are inoperative, it must be treated as an all way stop.  When traffic lights are inoperative, failure to stop at the normally controlled intersection prior to proceeding through the intersection when safe is a citable offense [Vehicle Code section 21800 (d)(1)], and carries a $238.00 fine.
