QCOSTARICA – Semana Santa (Holy Week), the annual commemoration of the Passion of Jesus Christ celebrated by Catholic religious, is known for its traditions that includes processions on the streets in towns and cities across the nation.

Speeding is one of the major cause of accidents. This driver was clocked at 151 km/h. There is not road in Costa Rica capable of permitting safely that speed.

Another tradition is heading out for the beaches and resorts. Any pool of water will do. Camping, surfing or taking a splash in the ocean is all part of the traditions. And so is the craziness and stupid things on the roads that leaves many injured and one too many a fatality.

Since the beginning of the exodus a few days ago, the Policia de Transito and the insurance inspectors have been busy attending all sorts of accidents, from fender benders, to falling off cliffs, landing in ditches and more serious, head on collisions.

The Facebook page Accidentes de CostaRica recaps some of the accidents during Semana Santa.

Though not resulting in accident, is this stupid stunt in Playa El Jobo, where a beachgoer heading home decided to mount the spare wheel when there was no room inside.
