Traffic is one of the biggest problems on the island and the San Pedro Town Council and San Pedro Traffic Department are working hard on alleviating traffic flow on our heavily congested streets. Many changes are set to come including the exclusive parking for golf carts on Barrier Reef Drive and the shifting of delivery time for large trucks that take goods, produce and products to the stores.
With these and other changes to come, the traffic wardens need to know how to properly approach the island residents and how to deal with situations they are faced with on a daily basis. During the weekend, Councilor Kenrick Brackett, whose portfolio includes Traffic, made arrangements for the island’s seven traffic wardens to attend a Customer Care and Public Relations Workshop.
Heading the workshop was Former Superintendent Rudolph Oreo and Francis Williams, both retired police officers. Oreo and Williams addressed the traffic wardens and taught them about customer care, public relations as well as traffic road rules. The traffic wardens were appreciative of the training they received and expressed that they are ready to deal island residents in a happy and professional manner.
