When a neighborhood in New York City experienced a blackout last July 13, residents were forced to navigate the city in darkness. However, thanks to the help of some resourceful individuals, the traffic situation didn’t turn into a complete mess. Apparently, the citizens of New York used their phones, flashlights, and lightsabers to save the day. Liam Stack of the New York Times posted about the traffic-navigating Jedi on his official Twitter account.
