Letter to the Editor: Repeat visitor concerned over traffic


Dear Editor,
As a repeat visitor to your beautiful Island, would like to convey our sincere appreciation for the hospitality of the residents who continually welcome us to your home. We try to do our part by respecting your admirable efforts to keep your oceans and shorelines as healthy as you can. It must seem like a difficult undertaking at times. We keep up with current issues through your newspaper, and as such would like to offer a short comment on a recent article about traffic in the downtown areas.
The complication of the semi-trucks in a constant parade must be so hard on the locals, and businesses as well as the well-being of the community. It was shocking to return and experience this, as we like to spend time downtown visiting the shops and restaurants. It is hard to imagine the challenges of a working solution, but we are glad to see your paper publicizing the issue of the trucks and saturation of the golf cart traffic.
Please view these comments as simply from an appreciative visitor from the US, who sees firsthand the awful side effects of traffic problems in our hometown.
We love Belize, the people and the culture and will continue to visit as long as you will have us.
Best Regards,
Lane Healy
