Sioux Falls police request common sense when street lights fail

by

SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (KELO AM) - Angry motorists complained to Sioux Falls police about traffic yesterday afternoon during an hour-long power outage in north central Sioux Falls.

     Captain Greg Vandekamp says when street lights go out drivers must treat every intersection as a four way stop.

     Vandekamp says there’s confusion on four-lane streets.  Minnesota Avenue, for example, has many stoplights and when they're not working some drivers think the road becomes non-stop.  He says thats where serious accidents and tragedy can occur.  State law demands motorists treat all intersections with non-functioning control lights as four way stops.         

     Vandekamp says there were no major accidents yesterday.
