Traffic Lights In Costa Rica Explained

From at #trendeiditoas Facebook we get the traffic light system in Costa Rica explained.

On the left is what drivers in other countries (other than Costa Rica) understand the signals mean:

  • Red = stop
  • Yellow = caution
  • Green = proceed

In Costa Rica, however, this is what the lights mean:

  • Red = make sure no one or traffic police is coming
  • Yellow = give it all you got (as in floor it)
  • Green = just go,

Editor’s note: Although this post is meant to be humorous, the sad part is that is the truth of what really goes on in our streets in Costa Rica.
