Stop lights are engineered to manage the flow of traffic. However, traffic lights sometimes malfunction. When this occurs, they will typically start flashing organge or red.
Many drivers are unaware of how to deal with a broken stop light. Because of this uncertainty, multiple cars will attempt to enter the intersection at the same time.
If the two cars hit, either one of the drivers may be at fault, and in some circumstances, neither driver may be at fault for liability reasons.
