Belize City Traffic Department Monitoring Movement

Allan Pollard

The Belize Police Department has mounted check points at various heavily trafficked points to monitor the movement of people across the country. Since the ease on restrictions last week, there has been an increase in traffic as people returned to work and businesses reopened.  The main thoroughfares in the city are experiencing an explosion and so today, we asked Councillor Allan Pollard, responsible of the traffic portfolio, about that department’s role in the situation at hand.

“You have the police department out there; they are doing most of the enforcement. Our job out there right now is basically monitoring and I have stressed that to the managers and supervisors to have a little hands off approach in terms of enforcement. So you are not seeing much ticketing at this time because we understand that people are out, they are getting their groceries, some people are essential workers and the primary fact is that people really noh have it right now. I mean if yo give a ticket right now, chances are they can’t pay. So our job right now in terms of enforcement for traffic is just simply monitoring, making sure that we don’t have that reckless approach to driving right now.”
