The new lights installed about a month ago in Ribeira Brava are already in operation.
The traffic light system, installed between the roundabout and the Ribeira Brava Fire Brigade barracks, contains an instantaneous speed detector. In this way, drivers who exceed the speed limit (50 km / h) will see the traffic light progressively turn orange and then red. The goal is for drivers to slow down in that area where there is a school, services and several homes.
It must be remembered that a solution has long been demanded for that section of road, where accidents have been constant in recent years.
