Slow down, follow signs: RCMP
A traffic plan was implemented Friday night to deal with the traffic associated with the Cavendish Beach Music festival.
Between 10 p.m. and 1 a.m. during the festival, Route 6, between Cavendish corner and the Cavendish beach boardwalk, is closed to all inbound traffic.
“The traffic plan makes traffic flow in certain directions,” said Sgt. Leanne Butler with Queens District RCMP. “We would certainly ask everybody to follow the directions of the electronic signs that are everywhere and any flaggers and police officers that are directing traffic.”
Butler also asked for people not to stop and let people out in the middle of the road.
“We find that is a problem each year,” she said. “They just kind of stop wherever they like and let their kids out.”
It slows traffic, causes collisions and is not safe for people getting out of the vehicles, she said.
Another problem is speeding. “Give yourself time to get to the concert,” she said. “Don’t rush to get here. Watch how you are driving, your speed and speed zones on the way and that will help keep people safe in the area.”
