Jeep_Corozal_1This morning, while workers were busy on the road project in Corozal they were temporarily interrupted as the driver of this black jeep drove pass the “men at work” sign and drove up on top of this pile of dirt located at the junction of 7th Avenue and 3rd street south. Luckily no one was injured.  Senior Traffic Officer Richard Quan today cautioned drivers to be a little more careful especially in areas where works are being carried out.

“I know that there has been a few of the signs that has been broken by drivers or even Corozalenos in a whole but what is the penalty?”


Richard Quan – Senior Traffic Officer


“Ok, we have fines to fail to be a traffic sign and then the police are taking care of driver driving without due care and attention, we are not out there 24/7 so we are asking all the Corozalenos to assist us to identify who is destroying these signs and all what we are asking you is to get the license plate number bring for us and then we will deal with it.”
