Marty Offline

For being a small town, San Pedro is faced with a lot of traffic problems. The hustle and bustle of everyday traffic that keeps things running on the island can become overwhelming at times. Itís the price residents have to pay to enjoy the commodities their island paradise provides. With all that traffic, there are too little traffic wardens to properly control and keep a close eye on the situation. The San Pedro Traffic Department counts with seven wardens all who have a lot on their hands to deal with.

This week the San Pedro Traffic Department has armed its wardens with a device that will assist them, not to alleviate traffic, but to hammer down on speeding. The department has acquired a speed gun to monitor the speeding habits of drivers and administer traffic tickets to those who violate the speed laws on the island.

I could probably look it up but I'm chronically lazy. What is the blood alcohol threshold in Belize?

I swear I saw a policeman South of San Pedro with what looked like a radar gun - both in June and October last year? Since the article seems to indicate this is a first - I wonder what that weird hand held device they pointed at vehicles was doing =)
