The San Pedro Transport Department embarked on a serious operation on December 12th, 13th and 14th to enforce the traffic regulations in San Pedro. The department policed the island for, and took possession of, vehicles that were on the island without a valid permit. The confiscated vehicles will be removed from the island at the owner's expense.

    The Transport Department reported to this newspaper that after careful studies only a few new vehicles (four or five) were granted permission this year. The remainder of the vehicles that were allowed had a replacement permit. A spokesperson for the San Pedro Traffic Department stated that when a replacement permit is granted the vehicle being replaced is to be taken immediately off of the island and not sold to another person or business in San Pedro.

    The San Pedro Transport Department has also drafted a proposed vehicle entry and annual fee to be put into effect as of January 2001. The new fees will be as follows:
