For a few thousand this has been an expensive mid-year vacation due to their bad driving habits. The Policía de Tránsito reports that they have issued more than 3.000 (3.284 to be exact) traffic tickets in the first seven days of the two week vacation period that ends on July 14.

German Marín, director of the Policía de Tránsito, said with the increased traffic flow so will there be an increase in the roadside checks and patrols.

Of primary focus by traffic officials is the Ruta 32 (San José – Limón), the Ruta 27 (San José – Caldera), Interamericana Norte (Ruta 1), the Inteamericana Sur (Ruta 2) and the Costanera (the Pacific coast highway).

The majority are for speeding, careless driving, not wearing seat belts and talking on a cellular phone.

Drunk driving is a major concern for traffic officials, especially in the last days of the partying.

Traffic flow back into the Central Valley is expected to be high this weekend. The Ruta 27 will be using reversible lanes into San José Saturday and Sunday afternoons.
