A quick reminder for Atlantans driving during and immediately after thunderstorms and power outages:

1. When the traffic signals at an intersection are off, the intersection is a four-way stop.

2. A blinking red-light at an intersection is like a stop sign.

3. A blinking yellow-light at an intersection means proceed with caution.

4. Rules 1,2 & 3 still apply even if your vehicle is a lot bigger than all the others at the intersection.

5. Driving with your blinkers/hazard lights on during a storm does nothing to enhance your safety or mine. It just makes me want to slap you.

    Hail! I wish those rules had been posted all over town last night. Jeez. I’ve never seen such bad driving. You’d think in an area that experiences hurricane season, people would know what to do in these situations…. apparently not.
