Slow down, fol­low signs: RCMP

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - THE ISLAND -

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.”
