My father and I just returned from a two week stay and we rode the Western HWY daily on the public buses. We stayed in Ontario Village and rode the busses back and forth to Belmopan, Belize City, Santa Elana and San Ignacio. It reminded us of some of the Highways in Kentucky that we used to travel - the road is paved,with a few pot holes,and no paint or road reflectors. NO traffic lights, and only a few stop signs in the entire country that we saw. No street lights either - so we did not venture out much after dark. Watch out for those pesky "Pedestrian Ramps" they are like speed bumps on steriods!
Um - come to think of it maybe the pedestrian ramps are far more effective than all of the lights, lanes, and road signs that we have here in the States. Why spend all of that money, energy, and effort on law enforcement and court systems, when you just have the ramps that will disable any vehicle that refuses to slow down? Maybe we ought to build a few of those around here!
