Nassau, The Bahamas – The Road Traffic Department has continued to serve the public since the lockdowns were implemented at the end of March.  Although the department is currently only operating from its main National Stadium centre, Acting Controller, Mr. Bradley Sands said that it is business as usual save for a few minor adjustments – namely offering curbside services three times a week (Monday, Wednesday and Friday) and a change in time – from 8:00 am to 1:00pm on those days.
