Drive Without Restriction This Holiday Season
Starting Monday and continuing till Jan. 5, the Public Works and Transportation Ministry will temporarily suspend its program of ticketing cars that drive into San José on days when they are prohibited from doing so.
The vehicle restriction law was passed last July, and prevents certain cars, according to their license plate number, from driving in the city between 6 a.m. and 7 p.m. for one day each week.
Transport Minister Karla González said that fewer people will be driving during the holidays, which makes enforcing the law less of a priority.
