Check Points in Belize
There are quite a few Check points around
the country of Belize. They are almost always in the same location.
In most cases, these check points are only
placed there by the Traffic Department in order to check that
the vehicles on the road all have license and insurance. All
vehicles on the road requires these. Dont worry all rental vehicles
in Belize will have both these documents.
Dont worry, the Check Points and other officers
in Belize are not known to be like officers from other territories
who are known for being unfair or looking for bribes. In Belize
you will not be stopped for petty offences; instead, it is more
likely that you will be excused for small mistakes since
you are a visitor to our country.
The traffic officers and police man at the check points will
only look at the vehicle and say hi and remind you drive safely.
They are also handy for directions.
