Oh, I know, I know: When it happens at a traffic light.
All of my life -- and if you live in the U.S., probably all of yours, too -- the rule has been that a traffic light that is out becomes a 4-way stop.
But never assume that. Especially when it happens where a major road intersects one of lesser imprortance. The drivers on the main road just zoom through.
We had a power outage downtown Sunday and I had the misfortune to be driving through the affected area. Had to keep changing my route to avoid nightmare intersections.
