Just back from San Jose, 2hours trip each way. FIVE road accidents on the way! No matter how carefully we drive it’s the other nutters on the road you have to watch out for.
First was this overturned lorry on narrow bend, traffic backed up, but everyone pretty patient. A too regular occurence. Rules here, no vehicle in an accident to be moved before police arrive.
A good Costa Rican practice is where ever there is an accident, to hack down some branches, walk a coupe of hundred metres down the road and place them in the middle to warn other drivers of the accident scene/hazard ahead.
Needed considering the number of accidents…
