I ventured into town today and noticed that many intersections that had stop signs no longer do. Is this planned or is someone stealing stop signs? Is the town board aware of this? Of course this may be a moot point as few locals ever bother to stop but other people did occasionally (hello John) get ticketed.

Take only pictures leave only bubbles

This is interesting that you bring it up Harriette.....A couple of years ago Tom got a ticket for parking in a no-parking zone (Taxi area I believe).......No red paint, no sign, just a post.....When he asked the patrol officer about it the officer simply said "someone took the sign" ....We made a copy of our $25 ticket promptly made payment and now have a funny story to tell.....By the way 2 years later there is still no sign there and Tom brings it up every time we pass it....... smile

The one way routes, location kf stop signs, no parking areas etc are listed in the government gazette and thus become lawful. Of course one would expect and perhaps even demand that the town council maintain these areas with high visibility signs etc.... But then we wouldn't have out funny stories to tell. Yes, Belize is quirky and frustrating at times, but all in all we just have to shrug and smile at some things.

Oncoming traffic in middle of the road.
