On Monday July, 25th the vehicle restriction will not apply, so cars whose plates end in 1 or 2 may enter the central town of San José without problems.
Similarly, this rule will be in force on Tuesday, August 2nd (day of Virgen de los Ángeles) and Monday August, 15th (Mother’s day).
Mario Calderón, director of the Traffic Police said that, since these are holiday days, the number of vehicles arriving in the capital is considerably reduced, so the measure is not necessary.
The plate number restriction applies in San José, taking into account the route of Circunvalación from Monday through Friday from 6:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m., starting with the plates ending in 1 to 2 on Monday and ending with the plates whose last digit is 9 or zero on Friday.
The fine for disrespecting this measure is 22,188 colones.
