Dear Brothers and Sisters,
How’s it going? Do you have any memories with traffic lights?
I remember, when I was a teen, my friends and I talked about traffic lights. We asked one another why Sapa didn’t have any. Some friends answered, “Sapa is just a small town. Only big cities have traffic lights”, while others replied, “Perhaps it would be hard to install traffic lights on the sloping roads in Sapa.” At that time, we all were curious to know where people would put traffic lights.
After many years, Sapa finally had its first traffic lights installed in 2020. The lights are positioned at the four-way intersection of 4D Highway and the road to Sapa market. 4D Highway connects Sapa to Lai Châu Province. So far the traffic lights have reduced the number of accidents at the intersection.
I’m so happy to see the first traffic lights in Sapa. May the town one day have more traffic lights to help people move safely on Sapa’s roads.
Have a good one.
