We've all come across one of these at some point: a traffic signal that is out, or otherwise, malfunctioning. The Michigan law used to state that the busier of the roads had the right of way, and that the less busy roads were to yield/stop, and proceed only when traffic allowed. That's all about to change.

According to WDIV, what used to be "an unwritten rule to treat [a malfunctioning traffic signal] as a four-way stop" is now law. So now, by law, we'll have to treat them like a 4-way stop. When it comes to a 4-way stop, it's first come, first served. But, if two or more cars arrive at the same time, it gets a little more complicated. Check out the video below to refresh your skills.
