Town traffic lights are managed through a vehicle detection system: when you approach an intersection with a red light, a call is relayed to the monitoring system and you will be given a green light.
Traffic lights can malfunction for several reasons: power outage, lighting strikes or system issues. When there is a problem, the lights usually flash red in all directions. This is the signal to treat the intersection as a four-way stop: stop, and then proceed through the intersection when it is safe to do so, in order of arrival at the intersection.
