Police warn drivers not to pull any U-turns between BICS and the cove

Limited visibility and the ferry marshalling lanes make the road region between Village Square and BICS particularly hazardous.

With the brand-new asphalt on Trunk Road, so comes a new paint job. The road dons double yellow lines between Miller Road and Mt. Gardner road to reinforce that cars cannot make U-turns before BICS school.

RCMP officers have noticed people aren’t always compliant with this directive.

“The hill crest limits visibility,” said Cpl. Paulo Arreaga, head of the local detachment. “In addi­tion, parked and moving vehicles in these four lanes make it an unsafe area to conduct such a manoeuver.

“We will be enforcing any prohib­ited u-turns in this area and drivers could see fines up to $121,” he said.
