No vehicle restrictions until January 16
The return of vehicle restrictions after the holiday season will not come until Jan. 16.
The restriction normally prohibits cars from traveling in downtown San José and within the Circunvalación, a belt route around the city, on specific days from 6 a.m.-7 p.m. The car’s license plate number determines which day it cannot be driven inside the restricted area. The fine for violating the restriction is ₡41,098 ($82). In 2012, the fine will be increased.
Drivers with license plate numbers that end in 1 or 2 are restricted from driving in downtown San José on Mondays, while the same applies for vehicles with plates ending in 3 and 4 on Tuesdays, 5 and 6 on Wednesdays, 7 and 8 on Thursdays, and 9 and 0 on Fridays.
Correction: The story originally stated Friday vehicle license restrictions as 9 and 10.
