Why is roundabout foliage such a mess?

Why is roundabout foliage such a mess?

I drive by the Hurley’s roundabout on a daily basis and I’ve noticed that it’s quite unkempt/overgrown with vegetation, and the TV monitors/screens haven’t worked in some time. Isn’t this roundabout still sponsored by DMS? If not, shouldn’t the NRA or another company maintain it better as the overgrowth does hinder adequate visibility? Auntie’s answer: […]

Who has right of way at roundabout by Hospital Road?

I would like to follow up on a recent post regarding three-way stops and in particular, that one at the junction of Hospital Road and Elgin Avenue. There are three-way stop signs on all sides but I don’t recall if there are give-way signs. If not, there should be. My question is, who IS supposed […]

What is the clearance of Dart’s tunnels?

Is there any reason why the heights of Dart’s tunnels aren’t marked on them like tunnels all over the world? I had to transport a large hi-top van to George Town on a flatbed tow truck and since I didn’t know the height of the tunnels and didn’t want the top of my van torn […]

A few weeks ago I was driving south on the Esterley Tibbetts Highway behind one of the commercial garbage contractor’s trucks. The dumpster onboard was full but uncovered and as I watched a large piece of packing foam flew off and bounced off the windshield of a following vehicle. Fortunately, that driver remained focused and […]

Are cyclists allowed to ride against traffic?

In travelling to work each morning, I am increasingly concerned about the amount of bicycles riding on the wrong side of the road. I especially notice a high volume of offenders on Walkers Road. What worries me as a motorist is when I see a cyclist riding ‘against’ the traffic passing a cyclist who is […]

Must NRA crews work during weekends?

| 03/07/2019 | 5 Comments

Why does the NRA do roadwork on the weekends? A time when people are off of work and trying to do some errands or just to do something relaxing; seriously amazing. Auntie’s answer: With work on roads seemingly everywhere and never ending in Cayman, I understand your frustration about your weekend peace being disrupted. The […]

Why haven’t the NRA responded to my suggestions?

| 11/06/2019 | 19 Comments

I have written to the NRA a couple of times through their feedback email address and on Facebook and have not received a response. I made a suggestion to possibly help the traffic issue leaving town and heading east in the evenings, which is getting increasingly worse. My suggestion was that from 4:30pm onwards add […]

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?

| 13/05/2019 | 62 Comments

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 […]
