KREYOL: Haiti - W ap sezi tande poukisa feux de signalisation yo pa mache nan Port-au-Prince... Leta gen yon kontra ak yon konpayi prive pou maintenance yo, leta pa peye konpayi, konpayi pa ranje... Chofè lanfè, demele gèt ou... Kisa ou panse de sa???

Le Nouveliste has just released an article titled: "A Port-au-Prince, black-out sur les feux de signalisation." that means, traffic lights don't work in our capital city, when you read the article you realize they haven't worked for ages.

Wanna know why? Here's your answer...

The government has contract with a private company to install and maintain the traffic lights. The government has not been paying, so the company stopped maintain the traffic lights...

TRUE or FALSE?

In a real country it is the Department of Transportation who maintains traffic lights and traffic sign.
