This a warning from the Widder Curry:
When was the last time your came off Highway 8 west, made your left hand turn, and continued to Famosa Boulevard (the street and bridge that runs over Nimitz Blvd), turned right at the signal and coming up to Voltaire St. Then, after making a complete stop at the intersection of Famosa and Voltaire you turned right? (Famosa becomes Catalina at the 7-11.)
Yesterday? Did you get a ticket? No? You don’t know how lucky you were, because without any notice a sign has been placed at that intersection that now reads “no right hand turns on a red light.”
People are complaining that they are getting $293 tickets for making that turn.
Where did you say that is again?
Going southbound on Famosa Blvd away from Cleator Park to the corner of Voltaire and Catalina; along side of the Catalina Lounge.
We have always been able to make a right hand turn on the red at this busy intersection. No more. The traffic is horrendous – people coming from Correia Middle school; the YMCA; people going to Highway 8; Sunset Cliffs, etc – you can only make a right hand turn when the signal is green.
BEWARE, Drivers. $293 is an expensive ticket! (And to make matters worse – there are plans to build condo’s, a restaurant, and a few shops on the south/west corner very, very soon. The street construction has already begun.)
Just a warning from your favorite “widder”.
