Are people allowed to ride in the back of trucks?

What does the law state about people riding in the back of pickup trucks? I know many people that have received tickets for not wearing a seatbelt but then I see guys in the back of trucks (which have no protection whatsoever) all the time. What gives? Auntie’s answer: It is illegal for people to […]

How to reduce traffic at start and end of Linford Pierson?

How to reduce traffic at start and end of Linford Pierson?

The work the NRA has done along the Linford Pierson Highways is great and has made a huge difference in the traffic jams along that stretch of road. But it doesn’t do anything to alleviate the bottleneck at each end – the roundabout at Kings Sports Centre and the mini-roundabout where the LPH meets Bobby […]

Why are parked cars allowed to block view of road?

We live next to San Sebastian and have called the RCIPS over and over again about cars that are parked blocking the line-of-sight to enter and exit our development. They also park IN our entranceway. We have complained even more to the developers of The Tides whose sub-contractors park there. The last response we got […]

According to the Road Code of the Cayman Islands, 2012, Section 3.11.5 , no vehicle at all is permitted to stop on a roundabout for any reason. If that statement is indeed true and the law, what does it say about stopping to let emergency vehicles through? I once had to suddenly stop on a […]

Why don’t we have traffic lights at crosswalks?

Why don’t we have traffic lights at crosswalks?

Why didn’t the NRA put walk/don’t walk pedestrian crossings to stop the situation that one pedestrian crosses, gets to the other side, another one starts to cross… cars still waiting… that pedestrian crosses then two more decide they want to cross, etc. It would make much more sense to have this synched so traffic moves […]

Road signs and passing on a divided highway

Road signs and passing on a divided highway

It infuriates me that people when driving on a dual carriageway don’t know that they should keep to the left lane unless they are passing. If I’m correct, perhaps you could ask the National Roads Authority to put up some signs. So, my question is: Should traffic stay in the left lane unless passing? Auntie’s […]

Traffic lights need buttons for pedestrians

Traffic lights need buttons for pedestrians

Why is it that the pedestrian crossings in central George Town have not been outfitted with the button-operated lights as has been done for other relatively new crossings? These GT crossings are the most used and these lights would certainly benefit pedestrians and drivers (providing they have a delay between activations) if/when installed. Then the […]

Following police instructions on the road

Following police instructions on the road

If a policeman is directing traffic contrary to the working traffic lights what are drivers supposed to do? Specifically, when the policeman at the junction of Fort Street, Harbour Drive and North Church Street is waving traffic forward but the lights are red, am I supposed to commit an offence by driving through the red light?

Segways and the Traffic Law

Segways and the Traffic Law

| 01/11/2018 | 21 Comments

1. Should the Segways that go along West Bay Road use the road or the pavement? I have seen pedestrians forced into the road when they are on the pavement, but also deliberately hold up traffic when they are on the road. 2. I have been seeing Segway tours being conducted on the sand on Seven […]

Buses should not stop in roundabouts

Buses should not stop in roundabouts

What are the rules in regard to where school buses can stop? I have seen a school bus stop on the roundabout by Hurley’s (on the inside lane) to allow children to disembark. It appears incredibly dangerous to me to expect all traffic entering the roundabout to stop.
