    FYI for you brides and grooms + family & friends coming to Costa Rica. As of March 1st the new traffic laws have been passed. Traffic tickets are exorbitant! Over the speed limit (50mph): $380+
    No seat belt: $300+
    Passing on right in school zones, bridges: $350+
    Laws used to be very lax but not anymore, please pay attention to road signs/road markings (in bad condition) to not get caught. Locals will flash lights signaling cops ahead. There are appeals to these new laws and pricing, until then.......
