STOP SIGN ... by Betty Matthews

Friday, August 12, 2016
The new “Stop” sign has replaced the “Give Way” sign on the intersection of Grassy Road, Taylors Road and Ferny Lane.  During the past month the corner has had an increase in traffic flow since the Australian Post Office and the Norfolk Island Post Boxes were moved into their new location at the P&R Store at the beginning of July.2016

The Stop sign is a reminder to all traffic that the extra volume of vehicles and pedestrians in the intersection area has increased, so this now means that all drivers and cyclist need to take care when entering Taylors Road and Ferny Lane.  The intersection also has the Norfolk Island Hospital entrance, the Ferny Lane Movie Theatre and the Centre Petrol Station, these areas also have many vehicles in the same vicinity.

The Traffic regulations for a STOP sign means you must STOP:
A “Stop” sign is eight-sided and has a red background with white letters. 
The rules for a Stop sign means you must come to a complete stop. 
The driver must stop as near as practicable to, but before reaching the stop line.”
Wait until the way is clear before entering the intersection.

Remember to Stop when you see the sign and to always take care when driving or reversing out of the parking areas by the new postal service area.
