There are several Speed Bumps
or as we locally call them "sleeping
policeman" on the roads of Belize. These Speed Bumps are used
to slow traffic in most residential areas. These bumps are usually
marked and you and are given a 100 yrds or 200 yards warning. However,
at times these signs have been removed or knocked overs so keep
an eye out especially when entering a small town or village.
There are three types of Bumps utilized in the country.
a) The Large Bumps which are projections on the road
(similar to a small hill)
b) The Pedestrian Passes - These are large concrete blocks that run
across the street.
c) Vibradores - These is a group of small hill like projections that
vibrate the vehicle as you travel over them.
