Just done a favour for a friend and cost me BZ$50 for missing a stop sign. Went back a little later to have a look and he was letting local's through, but it appeared he was only stopping people that looked like tourists and giving them a ticket. It was up by Richie's Supermarket Roundabout.

This was between 7pm and 8pm, has anybody come across this before?

Do you think traffic laws shouldn't apply in Belize?

I believe the LAW should apply to everyone and not just a few.

This happened to one of my visiting friends and he callenged the traffic warden - still had to pay! BUT it has to apply to everyone - Then have the enforcers move around.

I got caught and so did a bunch of locals at the same time. They could have put 5 wardens on the corner. I even gave the guy extra time to write my ticket so he could stop other vehicles. They can't get everyone and he knew my passenger and I weren't tourists. It all depends on how you want to see things, I screwed up, I knew it, I happily paid my fine.

Simon I screwed up aswell and happily paid my fine. On the other hand, while he was righting my ticket out over five locals did not stop. I informed him at the time and his answer was "can not see them". After going for our take out meal we went back for 10 min to watch. When we arrived there were now two traffic wardens there giving out tickets to people that looked like tourist and still not stopping locals and giving them tickets.
