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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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

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 […]

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.

Outraged by school bus drivers

Who is in charge of the school buses? The way many of them are driven is appalling! One turned so sharply into my street that there was barely an inch between the bus and the front right corner of my car …and as for stopping IN roundabouts or speeding! Children are probably learning from these […]

Is it lawful to drive a motorcycle in the bicycle lanes or on the shoulder of the road to bypass traffic (usually a rush hour event to bypass a mile or so of traffic, not just one obstruction)? Auntie’s answer: I have received several questions regarding motorcycles and rules of the road (as an example, […]

If a utility company digs up a government asphalt residential road to lay piping, are you able to find out what the rules are regarding how they are required to leave the road? Our residential road was dug up all down one side, the company did not replace/cover the trench in the same asphalt but a […]
