Car-free island of Sark gets its first traffic lights
The island of Sark where cars are banned has installed its first set of temporary traffic lights to remedy problems concerning tractor visibility.
Few places in the world manage to get by without cars for trips and errands, but the quaint Isle of Sark located off England’s southern coast has a blanket ban on cars. But rather than being stranded, island residents do not have far to travel for any of their trips as the island itself is just three miles long and a mile and a half wide.
For the first time, Sark residents have permitted a set of traffic lights to be placed on the car-free haven to help passing tractors to navigate certain blind spots on the island. Dixcart Lane is the home of the new traffic lights which will be a temporary measure while nearby hotels undergo refurbishments which affect the nearby roads.
