KPRC Journalist Tyrina donates duct tape

 Living without electricity at home is a huge inconvenience.

It becomes a potentially dangerous situation when it begins to effect the traffic signals.

A Houston police officer told 2 on the Beat that drivers have been racing through broken traffic signals without yielding the right of way to other vehicles.

This is more common in the morning when the glare from the sunlight makes it appear that the lights are green. 

There was a  rollover car crash at the intersection of Bissonnett and Bellaire on Thursday.

So on Friday morning, the HPD officer took the initiative and called for a Houston Fire Department ladder truck.

The crew decided to tape over the broken signal to reduce the amount of glare from the sun. 

KPRC Local 2 photojournalist Tyrina pitched in by supplying the firefighters with duct tape.
