Barbados Traffic Report - Red traffic lights do not mean go!

Here is a look at conditions on our roads and any major concerns for the morning.

ACCIDENTS

No accidents were reported to police at this time.

CONDITIONS

Conditions are already heavy across the island, but there are especially delays heading into Bridgetown.

CONCERNS

Sergeant Seibert Johnson is asking motorists to exercise due care.

The traffic cop noted the actions of some drivers  when approaching traffic lights is one of the Royal Barbados Police Force's major concerns:

"We're still experiencing problems with these flashing traffic lights. 

"Persons are driving through traffic lights as if they are green, so we want to remind persons that it is first-come, first-go if the light is flashing red. If it is flashing amber, you reduce your speed and proceed with caution."

He also lamented that:

"Persons are even driving through solid red lights - that is of concern.

"That is a dangerous act and we want to ask persons to desist. If you are caught you will be reported."

ADVICE
Be careful on our roads whether walking, riding or driving!
