    Traffic lights in aruba

    I am concern about something I see every day when I am on the road, car rentals are turning right on red. In Aruba is not aloud to turn right on red so please be careful.

    hey bully!!

    thanks for the reminder.
    here in the USA turning right on red after a full stop is allowed at many intersections.

    i am very very guilty of turning right on red in aruba.
    mea culpa

    twice, same vacation to aruba, i was stopped by the police for turning right on red..........both times it was the same police officer.i was very embarrassed and expected to be arrested.

    bully thanks!!!

    Something else Bully pointed out to me, was that you only pay attention to the stop light that is closest to you. Several times I caught myself about to pull out because the light out in front of me turned green, but my light (closest to me) was still red.

    They other thing we found out was that the white lines in the street, you are not suppose to drive through them. Get in the other lane and then back over.

    Since 1980, and throughout the many changes, we still love going downtown in Oranjestad.

    Thanks Bully.

    Knowing the rules of the road is important and each place seems to have its nuances.

    As in the USA, here in Canada we too can turn right on a red light after coming to a full stop, so when we are at a redlight in Aruba our Canadian driving habits kind of get the better of us. No excuse though. Glad it's been only taxis and private vehicles behind us and not the police. We wondered why people honked at us when we did that. Now we know.
