Ask HPD: Intersections and four-way stops

12/18/2014


Q. What should drivers do at a four-way stop?

A. Whenever you approach a four-way stop with another vehicle at the same time from different roadways, you should always yield to the vehicle on your right. Also, the first vehicle stopped at a four-way intersection has the right of way.

Q. What should drivers do at intersections if a traffic light goes out or if the lights are flashing?

A. If a traffic signal goes out because of a power outage and the police officer is not there to direct traffic, then drivers should treat the intersection as a four-way stop and yield to the vehicle on your right. If the signal is flashing, drivers with the flashing red light should stop and yield to other drivers before going through the intersection. Drivers with the flashing yellow light should proceed with caution.
