San Pedro Town traffic signs get revamped
Thursday, March 28th, 2013
The San Pedro Traffic Department has installed brand new reflective traffic signs across the town. Donated by an anonymous donor, the new traffic signs will help aid promote safe driving, especially with the influx of visitors arriving for the Easter vacations.
The additional signs that have been placed in the main streets of San Pedro Town will compliment to the heavy inspection that will be done by the traffic wardens over the weekend. According to Councilor Kenrick Brackett, whose portfolio includes traffic and waste management, these steps have been taken to ensure safety for pedestrians and drivers alike during this busy weekend. Street markings have also been repainted so as to more clearly show the “no parking” zones.
As for the old signs that have been replaced by the new reflective signs, they will be placed in other areas around San Pedro Town that are in desperate need of traffic markings. “This is nothing but the beginning. There is more coming in the future. We want to keep working and keep being consistent with our efforts to improve traffic safety for everyone,” said Brackett on the placement of the new signs.
Across the town center, banners were also set out reminding all visitors to drive safely. The traffic department reminds everyone to follow road safety rules during these days of heavy traffic. Do not drink and drive. If drinking, be sure to have a designated driver for the night. On behalf of The San Pedro Sun “Happy Easter to all and be safe.”
