Will Increased Traffic Surveillance Stop the Crazy Costa Rica Driving?

The purpose is to increase traffic surveillance beyond what the small traffic police force can do alone. This should increase the quality of driving conditions in the cities. In Cartago and Heredia we already see the program working, as there is improved safety and less congestion.

Violations of traffic law lead to injuries, death, air pollution, noise pollution, traffic and frustration. Knowing that there are more officers giving out tickets should decrease the chaos and disrespect for the law.

Additionally, the law has provisions stating that 40% of the fines collected will go to the municipalities and 60% will go to Cosevi, the Road Safety Council.
