[ARCHIVED] Drive safely through intersections with inoperable traffic signals

October 28, 2019, Martinez, CA – Contra Costa County Public Works would like to remind motorists in cases of power outages, traffic signals effectively become all-way stop controlled by default, in accordance with the California Vehicle Code (CVC 21800). Road users should exercise extra caution when approaching intersections and expect delays during these power outage events. The County does not place temporary stop signs when a traffic signal becomes inoperable.
