Simple Traffic Congestion Solution for Kuwait

 The traffic problems in Kuwait have started to become pretty irritating – particularly at peak times during the day. Whilst we are not in anywhere near as bad a position as Dubai, it’s starting to become a tedious affair to travel even the shortest of distances. 

In certain States in the US, drivers are allowed to make a RIGHT Turn at a Stop Light. Let’s think about this logically for a moment. You pull up to a Red Light, you want to make a RIGHT – you look to your left – and if it’s clear you proceed. This has helped the overall flow of traffic immeasurably.

Now we all know that Kuwait isn’t exactly blessed with the finest drivers in the world, but I think such a scheme WOULD benefit the country and help overall traffic flow. What do you think?

    Moey, are you talking about the one in Salmiya? You aren’t allowed to turn right on a red unless you get the GREEN arrow. Also, one light in the whole of Kuwait is hardly going to make that much difference is it!? 😉

    The concept is a little different. You are ALLOWED to Turn Right at ANY RED.

    So you can’t take a right on red .. I need to revaluate my driving.

    I don’t think that’s a good solution specially in Kuwait, where drivers already have trouble abiding by the rules. Imagine how hectic it would be, knowing how impatient Kuwaiti drivers are, I reckon car crashes will def increase.
    Another thing that they can implement is the sensor guided traffic light. I remember having to wait 5 minutes for the green light despite the fact that it was 3 a.m. and not even a single car was present in that area.

    i think letting cers turning right at red lights is a good idea. But at the bussyest streets I would have no turn on red sighs. I might also compact the cars, make the cars smaller. maby, possibley, widening the roads aswell.
