Update 6:34pm. A thank you to all those who wrote to point on the error and a bigger thank you to those who called to make sure I was Ok.
Needed a day off. The original post was an autopost set up days ago prior to the changes.
Yes, starting tomorrow, July 26, we continue with the two plates restricted daytime, the government scrapping the odds and evens for weekdays.

<<< Original post >>>
QCOSTARICA – Today, Sunday, July 25, plates ending in EVEN numbers (0, 2, 4, 6 & 8) CANNOT circulate.
The odds and even measure will continue until August 8.
The measure is countrywide and applied between 5:00 am and 9:00 pm, save for those under the well-known exemption.
The following is the official program on the restrictions.
Note that changes were made to the weekday restrictions from July 26 to August 8, no longer will the “pares” and “impares” measure be in place, replaced with two plates per day restricted from circulating.
From 9:00 pm to 5:00 am ALL vehicles are restricted from circulating, save for those under the well-known exemption.
Only vehicles listed in the well-known exemptions list can circulate.
Find here the official list of exemptions. Look for the exception letter “Carta de excepción para restricción vehicular“.
The fine for violating the restriction is ¢107,000 colones, plus costs.
