The statistics department of the  Policía de Tránsito informs that 31 drivers were ticketed between Saturday and Sunday, after the effect of the new point system. And the majority of the tickets were for speeding.

Under the new point system, drivers are given “demerit” points of four or six for each offence. The accumulation of 12 points – two offences in Category A or three in Category B or a combination thereof – means a driver losing his or her license for 12 months.
