    Malfunctioning traffic lights left motorists fending for themselves as they came off the Benjamin Franklin Bridge in Philadelphia Friday morning.

    The lights at 8th and Vine, which regulate traffic onto Vine Street or the Vine Street Expressway (Interstate 676), began malfunctioning before 7 a.m.

    More than 90 minutes later, motorists coming off the bridge battled it out to get past the malfunction.

    The traffic light issued continued through the morning rush before being resolved later in the morning.

    The Walt Whitman Bridge could be a better option for drivers crossing from New Jersey into Philadelphia.
