Not long ago Costa Rica got its new traffic law, one that introduces a system of accumulation of points, rather than the loss, as in the old law that saw every driver start off with 50 points and deductions were based on the type of infraction.

The new system is one where when 12 points are accumulated the driver loses driving privileges for a defined period of time and is required to attend driver education classes to regain the privileges.
