Truckers gather for benefit, thanks to their own radio show

A parade of trucks is an annual feature of the fiestas at San Josecito de San Isidro. Loud horns and air brakes let neighbors know about the local activities.

This is San Isidro de Heredia. There are at least eight San Isidros in Costa Rica. Local organizer Alfredo Zúñiga said sales of food at the festival raised 1.6 million colons to buy construction materials for the San Josecito church.

This year 150 cabezales took part, as in the tractor part of a tractor-trailer. They came from San Pablo de Heredia through San Isidro to San Josecito Sunday.

Truck drivers are alerted to the chance to join the parade by a program specifically for drivers “El Club de los Traileros” now on Radio Centro 96.3 FM,

The show is hosted by Warner Cordero.

The show is at 5 p.m. Tuesday night’s traffic details included a report that the bailey bridge on the Interamericana Norte at Cambronero was starting to tilt to one side.

This has been one of the biggest headaches as transport officials try to keep open access to the western and northern parts of the country.

Also the radio station reported that some traffic cops are apparently charging 15,000 colons for truckers to use the Aguacate highway between Atenas and Orotina, which is permanently closed to articulated vehicles.
