Driving in excess of 150 km/h on Costa Rica’s roads can land the driver up to three years in jail the loss of their driver’s license. The sanction is part of the new Ley de Tránsito that the country will see go into effect in the coming weeks.

Driving at such a high speed does not come with a monitery fine but rather with a prison term as called for in Article 254bis of the Penal Code.
