How to Drive Safely Through a Dark Traffic Signal

Source: City of Goleta

Traffic signals may not be working correctly during a power outage, including a planned public safety power shutoff (PSPS), and the City of Goleta wants to make sure all residents know what to do. If you come across a traffic signal with no lights, drive carefully and treat the intersection as an all-way stop. Here is a reminder of how to proceed:

  • Yield to any vehicle that is already in the intersection or arrives before you do
  • If two cars arrive at the same time, the car on the right has the right-of-way
  • Always yield to pedestrians
  • Do not be too cautious or aggressive
  • Stay calm
