Who can drive this Sunday?

Only vehicles with even plates: (0, 2, 4, 6 and 8) between 5:00 am and 7:00 pm will be allowed to circulate. After 7:00 pm and until 5:00 am Monday, all vehicles (except with specific exemptions) are not permitted to circulate.

From 5:00 am Monday and (for now) until 7:00 pm, vehicles with the plates ending 1 & 2 cannot circulate.

The vehicular restrictions (for now) are nationwide.

“For now” is used because President Carlos Alvarado will be making an announcement on Monday on new measures with a focus to reactivating commercial activity. Among the changes expected are relaxed vehicular restrictions.

The fine for violating the vehicle restrictions are ¢110,000 colones, six points on the driver’s license and subject to seizure of plates and/or vehicle. This sanction came into effect on April 3. Prior to that date, only a monetary fine of ¢23,415 applied.

The country began to apply these sanitary restrictions progressively since March 6, when the first case of covid-19 was detected in the country.
