The Florida Highway Patrol is reminding drivers to stop at inoperable traffic lights following two traffic fatalities that occurred post-Hurricane Irma in Marion County.
Troopers want to remind drivers that if they approach an intersection, where traffic lights are inoperable, they must treat it as a four way stop, according to an FHP news release. Each vehicle must stop, prior to entering the intersection. Drivers must also keep in mind, “first to stop, first to go,” as well as the dangers of not stopping. “Not following these instructions can cost you, a family member or someone else their life,” the release stated.
