Re: Traffic signals out are a 4-way stop
Combination of a few things -- law not being that well known, not caring, and the fact that it was so damned dark out last night during the power outage that 1.) you could easily see at any intersection whether or not there was light coming from other cars approaching the intersection and 2.) sometimes it's hard (in the dark) to see if an intersection has a light.
I know where I live there are a lot of pointless lights that got thrown up to guide traffic in and out of mini-malls, large subdivisions, etc. I don't pay attention to where they are other than to obey the signal when I see it. Driving in the dead of night with no light, though, sometimes its hard to remember if the intersection you're coming up on is a 4 way light or a standard straight-through with stop signs on either side.
