I Love Speed Bumps

Post in: Posts of Belize interest, by skistrail on February 15th, 2017

If you come to Belize, speed bumps are everywhere. I counted 32 bumps from Corozal to Belize City, and I think they added more since I counted them. Because there are very few Police cars on the road, speed bumps are used to reduce speed. The usual places for speed bumps are at schools and at least at each end of small towns.

The are two types of speed bumps. One type is like what you find in shopping center parking lots on the US. These are fairly small, but enough to slow you down. The other are called pedestrian walks. They are much taller, as much as a foot or so. These bumps are for people to cross the street. They are wide.
