Another golf cart rental company has opened on Pescador Drive. This new business contradicts what Mayor Daniel Guerrero said in November 2017, when he stated that his administration would no longer issue permits for new golf cart rentals. The San Pedro Sun reached out to Guerrero, who indicated that it is not a new rental, but rather a branch from an existing business operating under one set inventory of golf carts.

The Mayor explained that his administration has not issued any new permits for golf cart rentals. “If you see another golf cart office opening, you may think that it is a brand new company, but it is not,” said Guerrero. “In this particular case, [the company] has so much golf carts they are dividing the inventory and that’s why they opened a separate office.” Guerrero added that this does not necessarily affect the traffic on the island, because it is not additional golf carts being brought in. He re-emphasized that it is now two rentals sharing one inventory of golf carts.

In the past, attempts to control the importation of vehicles to the islands has failed. One of those is a long-term moratorium introduced in April 2016 to prevent the importation of additional golf carts, luxury and large vehicles to the island. However, despite such efforts, the moratorium did not survive, and no efforts have been made to reinstate it.

" Guerrero added that this does not necessarily affect the traffic on the island, because it is not additional golf carts being brought in."

Here we go again, trying to equate the number of golf carts as being the traffic problem. A golf cart is not contributing to the traffic problem until some is driving it. Fewer people equal less traffic. Or, adequate infrastructure to handle the traffic.
Or maybe a BTB ad campaign: "Come to Ambergris Caye for your healthy vacation where you walk to where ever you need to go".
