How to use a TRAF­FIC LIGHT

Nam Wheels - - News -

Our keen sense of eye­sight in­forms us on a daily ba­sis that some of y’all don’t know (or re­mem­ber) what a traf­fic light is for. Here is a quick refresher course for ev­ery­one’s ben­e­fit:

RED MEANS STOP

Seriously, STAHP! A red light means that the other side is now green and any at­tempt to cross the in­ter­sec­tion will ei­ther cause a crash or a very un­pleas­ant meet­ing with Dik Frik in his ‘Cruiser bakkie.

AM­BER MEANS CAU­TION

When the mid­dle am­ber (orange) light comes on, ideally you should stop for the im­mi­nent red light but if you are al­ready in the in­ter­sec­tion at the time, you may pass. Am­ber DOES NOT mean speed up!

GREEN IS GOOD

The green light at the bot­tom is your friend. When it’s on, all is well with the world. You may pro­ceed. Your ex wants you back, that itchy rash dis­ap­pears and you win the lot­tery. Do we have lotto in Namibia?

FLASH­ING RED MEANS DAN­GER

A flash­ing red traf­fic light means that it’s stukkend. Bro­ken! Treat the in­ter­sec­tion as a four-way stop and give right of way to any­one who got there be­fore you. Also look out for sig­nalling traf­fic of­fi­cers.
