    This is what happens when you tell people it’s okay to walk in the road. Traffic moves fast and cannot be responsible to avoid slow moving people standing in the road. There are places to walk off the road and people should use them. When two tractor trailers pass each other there is no longer room for a pedestrian and it’s not physically possible for the trucks to stop or avoid the pedestrian. The government of Belize is killing its own people. Get them out of the road and save their lives today!
