In an effort to make room for more parking spaces and reduce congested streets around town, The San Pedro Town Council (SPTC) is enforcing its sandwich boards regulation. Already in effect, the implementation will see the immediate removal of such boards that impede the free flow of pedestrians and are becoming an issue for drivers. The SPTC is kindly asking business owners to cooperate with the norm and to begin removing their sandwich boards before they are picked up by SPTC personnel.

“No sandwich boards will be allowed on the beach. We expect business owners to abide by this rule and remove the boards.” Guerrero indicated that the only areas where these boards can be used are at docks or other areas that do not interfere with the free flow of persons.

According to Guerrero, the decision to implement the rule comes from the many complaints by residents, and even visitors. He understands that many businesses, like restaurants, use them to display their services to attract potential customers. But according to him, it has become necessary to monitor where these are placed, so it does not become an inconvenience for the general public.
