New laws in Costa Rica

A new bill that is looking to be passed in Congress this week comes with several new driving laws and fines.

Do you slow down when coming up on an accident to check out what’s going on? Well an amendment in the new highway bill will now be fining people  ¢20.000 as punishment.

While seemingly ridiculous, this isn’t the only amendment that comes with the new highway bill.

You will also be given a  ¢94.000 fine for going under the minimum speed limit. As well as given a ¢20.000 fine for using loudspeakers between the hours of 7pm and 7am.

Finally a ¢47.000 fine for blocking the intersection, even if approached on a green light.

Yet another example of Costa Rica tax dollars hard at work 🙂
