Power Blackout in Colombia

The whole country suffered a three hour power outage yesterday.

The blackout caused chaos in the main avenues of the Colombian capital and other cities of the country since traffic lights stopped working.

That’s funny.  I was there in October, and I thought all of the traffic lights were Christmas decorations because no one paid much attention to them.  It makes sense though–it’s tough to run a red light when it won’t turn red.  I can see where this would cause some confusion and chaos in Colombian traffic.
