Vandals make their own traffic laws

A ‘no entry’ street sign has been defaced weeks after it was erected in San Fernando.

The sign, which was placed at Lotus Street, the entrance to Thompson Gardens, Tarodale, was splashed with blue paint.

Several motorists usually enter the street on mornings to turn as they attempt to avoid the traffic gridlock at the bottom of the overpass that heads into San Fernando via Tarouba.


Residents in the area have also complained that because of the sign, they are forced to make longer trips to their homes.

The Ministry of Works and Transport’s Traffic Management Branch which was responsible for placing the sign which stated specific times for no entry, told the Express it was placed “on consultation with the police.”

A response from the Ministry also said, “We are aware it was defaced and are making attempts to have it replaced.”
