I was shocked after this weekends power outage at the number of drivers who have no idea how to treat a stop light when the power is out.

 They probably know and just dont care.  That seems to be the general attitude here.

There are driving courses for a reason....but unfortunately, most people are just plain ignorant.

I know to treat it like a 4 way stop sign, but unfortunately, a lot of people treat it like a free-for-all. EEEK!
