As you enter the City on Pandora, most intersections from Cook Street westward have several more traffic lights and signs.
If the first 3 hours are any indication, Victoria drivers may need to brush up on some basics on traffic signals and signs. This morning from 6:00am to 9:00am, when most drivers (perhaps as high as 65%) were faced with the new signals, they either ignored them, or never saw them.
Now, while the sign above might have been rare around here before today, there are now more than a dozen of them, on every street that crosses Pandora, from Cook Street, and west all the way to the Johnson Street Bridge.
The above signage is also at every Pandora intersection in the core. Drivers are not supposed to cross the stop line until the light is green.
The car driver above clearly was not interested in the new signage and lights.
Perhaps the first “cycle rage” incident of the day. The driver above got an earful from the bike rider that was taking advantage of the new “two-way” track. The car driver entered the bike lane against a red light right outside City Hall.
Additional “personal signage” appeared at 7:30am this morning. This City worker holds up a “no right turn on red” sign for traffic at each light cycle. Those staffers left the intersections at 9:00am.
At Pandora and Blanshard, many cars did not obey the “no right run on red” signs and traffic signals.
Many cars simply failed to stop on the red light.
