Why is it so confusing that a traffic light that is out is a 4 way stop?
Or do some people just think their time is more important than others?
Because it's not a 4 way stop if there are no stop signs. Ask a Michigan State trooper.MICHIGAN VEHICLE CODE (EXCERPT) Act 300 of 1949
257.649 Right-of-way; rules; violation as civil infraction. Sec. 649.
(1) The driver of a vehicle approaching an intersection shall yield the right of way to a vehicle which has entered the intersection from a different highway.
(2) When 2 vehicles enter an intersection from different highways at approximately the same time, the driver of the vehicle on the left shall yield the right of way to the vehicle on the right.
(3) The right of way rules declared in subsections (1) and (2) are modified at through highways and otherwise as stated in this chapter.
The State Trooper also said that if one street has several cars traveling through the intersection in the same direction, they all have right of way without stopping. The street with less traffic must yield.
Sounds dangerous but is supposed to speed up traffic flow.
