Costa Rica Vehicle Safety Accessories Required By Law
The Costa Rican Transit Law imposed the requirement upon drivers to carry certain required safety accessories in their car. That portion of the law was challenged in Court which just ruled on what is required in the vehicles.
All vehicles in Costa Rica must carry:
A fire extinguisher, as provided by regulation depending on the nature and size of the vehicle.
At least two safety triangles or other similar device and at least one reflective vest or other similar attachment.
A spare tire and the equipment necessary to change it except by the constructive nature of the vehicle manufacturer requires.
The fine for failure to comply with those requirements is 20,000 Colones.
