The image of a traffic official travelling on a motorcycle without wearing a helmet has caused discomfort in the social networks, where dozens of comments criticize the actions of the woman and the driver.
The photo was published on Facebook by El Infierno en Costa Rica.
It cannot be determined if the photo is recent, but under the current traffic law, the fine for not using a helmet is ¢94.000 colones plus costs.
The comments ranged from sarcasm to indignation.
“The law is for everyone”, writes one user.
On the El Infierno en Costa Rica wall, the critical comments were forceful, with the general consensus that when it comes to “ordinary citizens” the fines are executed precisely.
