San Pedro Taking Steps to Alleviate Island Traffic Congestion
One of the main problems with the congestion is the heavy cargo trucks that are all over town delivering goods for grocery stores, construction sites and hardware stores. Upon the completion of the cobble stone streets it was said that traffic of those heavy trucks would be diverted to the back streets with limited permits within town limits, yet nothing was done to implement these rules. With this in mind, the San Pedro Town Council has taken the step of making it a law that delivery of goods be done only at night. Ambergris Today met with Mayor Daniel Guerrero who elaborated more on this issue.
“We are working hard on getting this law gazette,” stated Mayor Daniel. “We hope that by March of this year all deliveries will be taking place during the night so as to alleviate the traffic congestion on our streets and mostly to avoid any accidents.”

That's Right! Deliveries using large vehicles will be prohibited during the day and will have to perform duties at night so that we can have a safer streets for smaller vehicles and pedestrians, especially the kids going to school in the morning, lunch time and in the afternoons.
