Drivers urged to obey traffic signs
The Bermuda Road Safety Council is calling on drivers to obey traffic and road signs as part of its messaging for the month of April.
Dennis Lister, chairman of the council, said: “The BRSC chose this topic because we believe all the motoring public should know the importance of these signs, their meanings and why signs are placed around the island.
“The purpose of traffic and road signs is to provide guidance, information and warnings to all road users.”
Mr Lister reminded the public that all traffic and road signs are listed in the Traffic Code Handbook which his available from the Transport Control Department.
He added: “Whether it is the speed limit, stop, concealed entrance, or give way sign – all road signs are erected for our safety. By adhering to road signs, we all make an important contribution to making our roads safer.”
Mr Lister said that the Junior Road Safety Council had been reintroduced consisting of five students, and that the council was working on rebranding and had launched a new logo.
