GREENSBORO, N.C. — Many severe weather incidents could cause a traffic light to potentially lose power.
It is North Carolina law to come to a complete stop at a traffic sign that is dark or flashing red.
State law says drivers should proceed through the intersection "as though such intersection is controlled by a stop sign on all approaches to the intersection.”
When you approach the intersection, come to a complete stop and wait your turn.
Driving through an intersection without stopping during a signal outage is dangerous and against the law.
If a law enforcement officer is directing traffic, follow their commands.
