What to do When Approaching a Broken Traffic Light

Traffic light Malfunctions

Do you know what to do when approaching a broken traffic light?  It’s good to stay informed about the rules of the road in NYS.

Below is a list of scenarios as provided by the NYS Vehicle and Traffic laws:


State law requires that if the traffic lights or controls are out of service or does not operate correctly when you approach an intersection, you must come to a STOP as you would for a stop sign. You must then continue according to the rules of right-of-way, unless you are told to continue by a traffic/police officer.
