What to do if a traffic light isn't working

MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) – While crews are working around the clock to restore power to our area, many intersections still have stoplights that are not functioning.

The South Carolina Department of Public Safety reminds drivers of the following procedures when encountering a stop light that is not operating:

-No signal lights: lights should be treated as a four-way stop.

-Flashing red: lights should be treated as a stop sign.

-Flashing yellow: Drivers should proceed with caution only when traffic permits.

As always, drivers should always use their turn signals, yield to pedestrians in crosswalks, and watch out for and obey any officers directing traffic within intersections, according to Georgetown County.
