The Guam Police Department (GPD) and the Guam National Guard (GUNG) will begin traffic control at four way intersections with non-functional traffic lights at 6 a.m. this morning and will end traffic control operations at 6 p.m. this evening.
To ensure safe passage on the roadways after Typhoon Mangkhut, GPD and GUNG were designated to man various intersections across the island, and to direct traffic in a safe and orderly fashion.
Please practice courtesy for safety officials and follow these important tips:
• Comply with all commands given by officials.
• Reduce speed and proceed with caution
• Do not use your cellphones.
• Allow enough braking distance between vehicles
• Observe your surroundings at all times
• Watch for debris on the side of the roadways – DPW have cleared major routes but staged debris may still be on the roads
