QCOSTARICA | In rush hour, drivers inch away through any open space to avoid the congestion, ignoring demarcations to channel traffic flow, causing even more congestion.

For this the Road Safety Council (Consejo de Seguridad Vial  – Cosevi) and the Directorate General of Traffic (Dirección General de Ingeniería de Tránsito – DGIT) announced the installation of “tachulones” (Botts’ dots) at 14 intersections in Heredia and San Jose.

The nonreflective raised pavement markers are usually round, are white or yellow. Important to note here similar devices, in conjunction with ‘domes‘, were used in pedestrian boulevard in Chinatown, where  vehicular traffic crossed. That program didn’t do very well.

Carlos Sandino, head of the DGIT, said the tachulones are reduce or eliminate drivers going around traffic congestion.

The intersections are:

  • Near La Bomba Delta (gasoline station), n La Uruca
  • Rotonda la Bandera
  • Rotonda de Garantías Sociales (Zapote)
  • La Valencia in Heredia
  • Mall La Rivera in San Antonio de Belén
  • Ruta 110, in the area of Numar in Barrio Cuba
  • Ruta 102, in Moravia near colegio Saint Clare
  • In front of the Caribeños bus terminal
  • Cruz Roja de Desamparados
  • Ruta 200 in front of the Princesa Marina restaurant
  • Ruta 108 in front of Recope
  • Ruta 5 in front of  Más x Menos in Tibás
  • Ruta 202  in front of Conavi

Sandino added that a project of installing tachulones at problem intersections is scheduled in stages over several years which also is expected to include ‘complicated’ intersections in Alajuela and Cartago.
