Hundreds of thousands of homes and businesses are still without power. This means lots of stoplights are also out.

Many treat a dark stoplight as a four-way stop, and that system seems to be working fine. But Michigan State Police say that's not actually the way to do it.

"The intersection reverts back to the basic right-of-way requirements, not a four-way stop. Use caution and courtesy!"

The law is listed in the Michigan Vehicle Code Section 257.649, drivers must use the right of way requirements.

The listed law says: Sec. 649.

(1) The driver of a vehicle approaching an intersection shall yield the right of way to a vehicle which has entered the intersection from a different highway.
