Drivers who flout traffic laws and cause traffic jams at road junctions by blocking traffic and ignoring yellow box rules will from 1st May be fined BD20. Traffic police have announced that from this date they will begin to enforce the law relating to yellow bxes at key intersections throughout Bahrain.
Yellow box junctions are criss-cross painted boxes on the road. The signify that drivers should not enter unless their exit is clear, even if the light is in their favour. Their purpose is to stop bottlenecks when impatient drivers pull across junctions but then cannot get out because of other traffic blocking the exit.
“These boxes are aimed at keeping the flow of traffic moving and the junction clear and are place at junctions that have a history of traffic jams” said a traffic police spokesman.
