Baltimore, MD – Mar. 19, 2023 – 5:30PM - Be cautious when approaching the intersection of Park Heights & Seven Mile Lane. where the traffic lights are in flashing mode.
Reminder: The law in Maryland requires drivers approaching a non-functioning traffic control signal to stop at a clearly marked stop line, before entering any crosswalk, or before entering the intersection. Drivers must yield to any vehicle or pedestrian in the intersection and remain stopped until it is safe to continue through the intersection. If two vehicles approach an intersection without a traffic control device or with a non-functioning traffic control signal from different roadways at the same time, the driver on the left must yield the right-of-way to the vehicle on the immediate right. Flashing red and yellow lights on a traffic control signal do not mean the light is 'non-functioning'. Drivers approaching a red flashing light must stop and can only proceed when the intersection is clear, and drivers approaching a yellow flashing light should slow down and use caution but can proceed through the intersection without stopping.
