Lights Out

I just came back from book rental. I borrowed some books yesterday, and today, i had to return it. On my way there, i had to cross an intersection near my house, but the traffic lights went out, so everybody just cross the road as fast as possible. The police post was also empty, since nobody there (it's only occupied at morning until noon). It's quite dangerous, since if you aren't aware, you might get hit by a vehicle (if they were quite fast and don't have time (or don't want) to slow down. There's no specific rule to follow when traffic lights went out. I wonder what happened on other cities or countries? Do they do this as well? Any experience?


  1. so everybody just cross the road as fast as possible.

    That's where everybody doing it wrong. The correct one is, everytime you want to cross, check your left and right first.

    And for driver, everytime you cross an intersection, slow down first and make sure it is secure to cross the junction.

    Although there is no detail guidelines when the traffic light goes off, there is general rule: "memperhatikan keselamatan"

  2. yes, that's the ideal way :)
