New traffic cameras to watch over freeways
San José Speeders beware. The Public Works and Transport Ministry (MOPT) has 12 new eyes watching over Costa Rica’s highways.
Traffic police will be capable of monitoring and ticketing unsafe driving with 12 recently installed video cameras, reported La Nación on Tuesday. The cameras were subjected to a two-month trial period and are installed on four different highways: General Cañas, Florencio del Castillo, Próspero Fernández and the San José metropolitan beltway.
Traffic law violators will be identified by their license plate number, and a notification of their offense and citation will be delivered to their residence.
In the near future MOPT intends to install more cameras along other high-traffic roads.
