The Royal Newfoundland Constabulary is asking motorists to use caution at a busy Wabush intersection.

The area of concern is the intersection where Bond Street meets Grenfell Drive. The area is adjacent to the shopping centre parking lot close to the Bank of Montreal.

The intersection contains a three way stop, and police remind people that he traffic on bond street has the right of way , as there is no stop sign on that street. That means vehicles leaving the shopping centre parking lot and vehicles on Grenfell must give motorists on Bind the right of way.

As well the RNC reminds drivers about how the three way stop works. The first vehicle that comes to a complete stop has the right of way. If two vehicles arrive at the same time and face each other, the left turning vehicle must yield to the oncoming vehicle. If two vehicles arrive at the same time, the vehicle on the right has the right of way.

Media Relations officer Constable Shawna Park informed the Aurora, “The Labrador West Constabulary members have been actively monitoring the location, and enforcing the Highway Act by issuing summary offenses to people who violate the act.”

People are reminded that the RNC will continue to monitor the area.
