The San Pedro Town Council presented the "handed-over" financial report and a progress report on their first 100 days in office.

Mentioned during the meeting were projects that are in the pipeline which include licensing of dogs, licensing of bicycles, major upgrade and facelift of the Ambergris Stadium, new parks for Zaak bajo area, DFC and San Mateo, and major changes in the traffic department.

It was announced that there will changes in regards to parking on Barrier Reef Drive and Pescador Drive. Councilor Kenrick Brackett explained in some detail that there will only be 15 minute parking on both Barrier Reef Drive and Pescador Drive due to the heavy congestion on these streets and only small vehicles such as golf carts and atv's will be allowed to park on these streets.

Secondly, delivery services will only be allowed to take place between the hours of 10:00 p.m. to 7:00 a.m. and all working vehicles (eg: freight trucks) will only be allowed to operate between the hours of 6pm to 6am. All cargo containers must be parked at the Marina located in the DFC as they will no longer be allowed to be anywhere in town.

Major changes are also coming for all golf cart owners as the golf carts will be required to have indicators and taxi will have to downsize as the Jasmine Law comes into effect ALL taxis will have to be painted the same color and all taxi drivers to have proper identification.

The program to enforce the licensing of dogs and bicycles, no parking for over 15 minutes and golf carts with indicators (wonder who will monitor whether a driver uses them or not) should do a lot to bolster full employment on the island. I agree, lots of pretty words. I guess the financials were in pretty good shape since there must be lots of extra cash to fund these well meaning programs.

How the heck do you retrofit a golf cart with turn signals?
Do my arms count?

You can buy a kit that has everything necessary to add turn signals to your cart.
