Traffic Lights Out; Obey Four Way Stops

Posted 8:11 a.m.

There are many intersections in Fairfax County right now that are without working traffic lights. If you go out today, drive with caution and PLEASE obey 4-way stop rules at intersections without power.

  • Treat each traffic light as a four-way stop, with the driver on the right having the right-of-way.
  • Proceed with caution only when traffic permits.
  • Enter intersections only when it is safe to do so, using turn signals to let other motorists know your intentions.
  • Yield to pedestrians in crosswalks.
  • Watch out for and obey police officers directing traffic within intersections.
