Mount Gambier had a set of traffic lights installed on the intersection of the Jubilee Highway and Pick Avenue about a year ago.
Traffic lights themselves are nothing new, but this set featured our first arrow to turn right array.
The type that starts red, and then disappears altogether, until later when a green arrow shows the oncoming lane has halted.
No biggie for city drivers, but this isn’t the city.
Locals assumed when the red arrow went away it was safe to turn.
We now have an illuminated sign that comes on advising fold to turn with care when the arrows are not illuminated.
This xkcd cartoon makes me think this must be how some locals view that intersection.
