The fine for violating the restriction is ¢110,000 colones. As with previous restrictions last year, license plates and/or vehicles will not be seized, nor will points be against the driver’s license.

The rebound in covid-19 cases in recent weeks reduced the hospital capacity to care for patients infected by this virus, so the Government varied the health vehicle restriction. Take note of the changes in the sanitary vehicle restriction as of this Tuesday, April 27.
