QCOSTARICA – Drivers who violate the traffic laws starting today, January 1, will pay 4.59% more in fines, equating to between ¢1.000 and ¢13.000 colones depending on the violation.

According to the deputy director of Transito (Traffic police), Sonia Monge, each year the fines take into account changes in the Consumer Price Index (Precios al Consumidor – IPC, in Spanish) to June 30, published by the National Institute of Statistics and Census (INEC).
