Sixteen alternative side parking signs were erected at various spots on Barrier Reef Drive last week to alleviate the double parking situation in town. Although it will take residents of San Pedro some time to get used to this, the Ambergris Caye Traffic Control Committee (ACTCC) hopes they can count on the support of all vehicle owners.

    The process is simple. It is mandatory for vehicles to park on the east side of the streets from the first to the fifteenth day of each month and on the west side of the same streets from the sixteenth day to the end of each month. Although signs have only been placed on Barrier Reef Drive, it is expected that they will soon be erected on Pescador Drive, Angel Coral Street, Nurse Shark Street and Almond Street.

    When the signs become available it will also be mandatory for vehicles to park on the north side of the following streets from the first to the fifteenth day of each month and on the south side of the same streets from the sixteenth day to the end of each month. The streets to which this will apply include Caribeña Street, Pelican Street, Ambergris Street, Buccaneer Street, Black Coral Street and Tarpon Street.

    According to Ms. Debbie Spain of the ACTCC, the first two weeks violators will be given warnings as they grow accustomed to this new procedure but she urges all vehicular owners to abide by this rule. After this period, illegal parking tickets will be issued to offenders.

    This declaration came into effect on March 1st, 1997 but had not been implemented in San Pedro until now. All operators of vehicles in San Pedro are advised to pay special attention to this notice.
