    A right turn from that road is illegal and the sign is clearly posted. Traffic laws are not enforced in St Lucia, particularly where it relates to signage and traffic lights. People routinely run lights and disregard no-turn signs. Accidents occur at this intersection and the turnoff near Morgan Bay time and time again for this same reason.

      There is no sign there indicating a right turn is illegal

        Yes there is. The sign is by the airport fence and facing that road. Of course, seeing the sign depends on knowing how to read road signs. It is clearly there, just like the one at Morgan Bay. Consider this your eye/driving test. If you do not see the sign, you failed.

          You are thinking of the no right turn sign outside Northwest, it is perfectly legal to turn right at JnMarie’s.

    The road markings show a solid line which means vehicular traffic should not cross. Therefore a right turn is prohibited.

      Exactly. Plus there is a sign facing that road, on the airport fence with the symbol: no right turn.
