Ribeira Brava has some new state of the art traffic lights. These new traffic lights located at the Piscinas Complex and the Ribeira Brava Fire Brigade can now detect when drivers are exceeding the 50 km speed limit. When this happens, the lights change to amber and then red. Experts believe that the signal colour changes will remind drivers to reduce their speed.
According to JM Madeira, this area is an accident blackspot and there has been an increased demand for traffic calming measures.
