Chief's Corner -- Traffic Signal Malfunctions - Wednesday, July 20, 2016

We have recently experienced some strong storms here in middle Tennessee and one of the problems these storms sometimes cause is for traffic signals to malfunction. When this happens it can cause confusion, traffic delays and even traffic accidents if everyone is not careful and does not know how to react. We would like to offer the following teaching points as a refresher for all drivers that may not remember what is expected of them when faced with these situations.

First, when the light is blinking red, the driver should treat the intersection as a stop sign. Stop and proceed when you have right of way or when the way is clear. Remember that cross traffic may have a flashing red light also or they may have a flashing yellow light which would give them the right of way.

Second, when the light is flashing yellow, the driver should approach the intersection by slowing down and proceed with caution. This driver has right of way over drivers with a flashing red light and should not disrupt the flow of traffic by being a good Samaritan and stopping for traffic that does not have right of way. This only adds more confusion, causing a more serious traffic problem and could result in an accident

Third, when the light is completely off, all drivers should treat the intersection as a stop sign and should stop before entering the intersection. Drivers should use courtesy and follow the same rules of the road for right of way like a stop sign.

Finally, be careful, courteous and safe. If you do not have right of way, don’t be pushy or try to force your way into the intersection. Not only might you cause and accident which may hurt an innocent person, you may be held liable for the accident.
