Traffic Wardens attend Public Relations workshop The San Pedro Traffic Department has been working hard on the island to ease traffic related problems and new parking regulations have been set in order to alleviate street congestion on the three main streets. Beside these regulations there has also been a significant increase in traffic wardens patrolling the streets to ensure maximum safety for both pedestrians and motorists.

Traffic-Warden-WorkshopWith all these new changes, it only seems fit to have San Pedro’s traffic wardens properly skilled for the task. Kenrick Brackett, Councilor in charge of traffic on the island, arranged a Customer Care and Public Relations Workshop for the island’s seven traffic wardens. The workshop was held on Saturday February 23rd and it was an all-day event. The purpose for the workshop was to educate the traffic wardens on the proper way to handle problems with the public as well as ways to enforce traffic rules of the road. Speaking at the seminar were Rudolph Orio, former Inspector of Police responsible for the San Pedro Formation and Francis Williams former Superintendent of Police in charge of the Traffic Department in Belize City, both retired assisted by Inspector Pook of the San Pedro Police Formation. Orio and Williams shared their experience on how to interact with people to ensure maximum productivity. Councilor Brackett stated that he wants the traffic wardens to be effective in doing their job but at the same time for them to be polite when dealing with the public.

With the ongoing new regulations some members of the public have reacted negatively. This workshop was also aimed to train the wardens on the best possible manner to deal with such situations.

Councilor Brackett explained that there are still many aspects of traffic regulation that can be enhanced. Brackett reminded the public that vehicles should not be parked for longer than 15 minutes on Pescador Drive. In addition, large delivery trucks should only utilize the back street during day light hours. Brackett and the SPTC, through the generous contributions of donors will be installing new reflective traffic signs across the town. “Traffic is everyone’s business”, said Brackett indicating that only with community effort can traffic issues be solved. He also reminded the public to drive safely and respect the traffic regulations in place.

SPTC donates $500 to Police Department

The San Pedro Town Council (SPTC) has closely worked together with the San Pedro Police Department (SPPD) to provide the best security possible for the island. In order to maintain law and order it is essential for the police to be able to answer distress calls in a timely manner. As such, it is imperative to have working vehicles to carry out these duties.

It is also necessary to keep all vehicles at the SPPD’s disposal in the best conditions in order to respond to emergencies, but maintenance costs are high on the island. With this in mind the SPTC made a generous donation of $500 to the SPPD to cover the repair cost of the Polaris used throughout the island. The donation was handed over by Councilor Garbiel Nunez. At hand to receive the check was Inspector of Police, Reynaldo Pook.

It would be helpful to put all traffic signs facing oncoming traffic so they can be seen and read. Many signs, particularly "no parking" signs, currently face into the street where they cannot be seen by oncoming traffic.
