Puerto Vallarta, Mexico - After several meetings between Romantic Zone neighborhood associations and the city's Subdirección de Vialidad that focused on improving pedestrian and vehicular traffic in that area, it was agreed that speed bumps would be installed on Olas Altas and Manuel M. Dieguez streets to reduce motorists' speed and thus reduce the possibility of accidents.
Jesús Rodríguez Campoy, the head of the agency, said that the citizens were responsible for buying the speed bumps and the municipal government provided the labor.
"The speed bumps are now fully install, and we'll see what further actions will be taken after the forthcoming meetings we have; this is a joint effort between society and government," Rodríguez Campoy said.
The municipal official asked that, during the rainy season, drivers keep a greater distance between vehicles, to respect speed limits, check their brake and lighting systems, and to avoid passing through streams that have a high water level. He also reminded parents that all children must ride in the back seat of cars.Original article translated and edited by María Francesca for BanderasNews.com.
