(QCOSTARICA) This week is not a good week, if there is every any, to have your license plates and/or vehicles seized for violating the vehicular restrictions.

Due to the strict vehicular restrictions this week by COVID-19, the Consejo de Seguridad Vial (Cosevi) announced the temporary suspension of services for the return of seized plates and vehicles.

The institution explained that the measure will apply between this Monday, July 13 and next Friday, July 17 for all offices (central and regional) in the country.

“The decision to suspend this service, one that requires a physical presence of users in our facilities, has the sole purpose of controlling and reducing the exponential increase in the spread of the coronavirus,” said Edwin Herrera, executive director of Cosevi.

Users can call 2522-0815 or the email platform-servicesj@csv.go.cr for inquiries.

This situation occurs at times when the Cosevi is overwhelmed by the number of plates seized.

On Sunday, July 12, from 5:00 am to 5:00 pm, 120 drivers lost their license plates for violating the vehicular restriction, in addition to a fine of ¢110,000 colones and six points on their driver’s license.

For the night time restrictions, from 5:00 pm Sunday to 5:00 am Monday, 135 drivers were stopped for violating the restriction.
