Safe Driving Tips

No Light? It’s a Four- Way Stop
from the Michigan Secretary of State

Based on the recent passage of a new law effective July 23, intersections with non-functioning traffic signals are to be treated as 4-way stops.

According to the What Every Driver Must Know publication, the proper procedure for a 4-way stop is as follows:

You must come to a complete stop and check for traffic before proceeding. Stop at the stop line or crosswalk.

If there is no stop line or crosswalk, stop at a point that allows you to see all approaching traffic without having to pull into the intersection.

The driver who arrived at the intersection and stopped first has the right of way through the intersection.

If two or more vehicles reached the intersection at the same time, the vehicle on the left should yield to the vehicle on its right.
