However, the monetary fine of ¢107,000 colones plus costs will continue. Originally the plan proposed to reduce the fine to ¢ 23,000, finally, a political agreement between the legislative benches maintained the pecuniary sanction.

The agreement also established that the fines collected go to the Caja Costarricense de Seguro Social (CCSS) – the Costa Rican Social Security Fund.

To the end of August, violators of the sanitary vehicle restriction more than ¢1 billion million for the care of the pandemic.

According to data from the Road Safety Council (Cosevi), to the end of August, almost 28,000 tickets have been issued for violating the measure, fines totaling more than ¢1 billion colones.
