Journalist and radio personality Amelia Rueda, in her Friday morning radio program “Nuestra Voz” (Our Voice) she asks, What is wrong with the people who drive? We must reverse this culture “I do what I please” on the roads.

Doña Amelia says drivers in Costa Rica are people who think they can handle their car as if it were a loaded gun. And given that the Government has demonstrated that it cannot control what happens on the roads, she proposes a public initiative to intervene with draft a bill.

Some of the comments by visitors to AmeliaRueda.com:

“It is complicated, are going to penalize with prisons? If the prisons are overcrowded … with higher fines? As if there aren’t enough traffic officials to enforce them. With cameras and then appealed and the Sala IV strikes them down? …until drivers do not understand the harm they do by driving recklessly there is nothing that will make a difference”

“What happens is that drivers do not RESPECT others. Here (in Costa Rica) it is me first, me second, then me…the tougher previous law with higher fines worked until famous the SALA IV butted in, but we also need honest cops…laws serve us nothing if there are no good cops who enforce them”

“In this country, everyone does what he or she wants, it’s time to do something…”
