Aruba Traffic

Aruba Bound
ARUBA April 10th, 2013– The traffic on our beautiful island is sometimes a lot and congested in some places. There are a lot of people driving here from different countries and they have different driving styles. The traffic laws are almost the same all over the world, (just some small differences).

For example the traffic lights mean the same in every country.

The green light commands you to drive! and the red light commands you to stop! Yellow/Orange also means Stop! and if you cannot stop continue driving and clear the crossroad as soon as possible.
