New Non-functioning Signal Law In Md. Effective Oct.1

Posted: Updated:

MARYLAND - A new Maryland law starting October first aims to clear up confusion about what to do at a traffic light that isn't working.  

It says a driver approaching a non-functioning signal at an intersection must stop at the stop line before entering the intersection or any crosswalk. After stopping, the driver must yield to any vehicle or pedestrian that is in the intersection and remain stopped until it's safe to proceed.

Violate the law and you'll face a $90 fine and two-points. If the violation contributes to a crash, the fine is $130 and three points.
