SINT MAARTEN: The Tourism, Economic Affairs and Traffic Inspectorate reinforces controls


The Tourism, Economic Affairs, Traffic and Telecommunications Inspectorate (TEATT) has intensified its enforcement activities in the areas of public transport, noise pollution as well as illegal sales along public roads .

Checks were carried out everywhere on the Dutch side, but particular emphasis was placed on Great Bay, Cole Bay and in the Simpson Bay area.

A total of nine fines were issued to people caught selling on or near public beaches selling various items.

Two fines were issued to people who practiced massages on the public beach without a permit.

Two other fines were issued to companies that carry out undeclared overtime.

Another  company was fined for noise disturbance.

These checks were carried out day and night during weekdays and weekends.

The Inspectorate imposed a total of six thousand florins (3300 dollars) in fines during these last checks. These checks will continue, and the authorities are asking all sellers and businesses to comply with the law.

All other persons must have the necessary permits to carry out their activities in accordance with the laws in force.

They can go to the Public Services Center in the government building (Department of TEATT) to obtain the appropriate permits so that they can legally benefit from Sint Maarten's tourist economy and be part of a law-abiding society._AF
