The Fuerza Pública said that 75 percent of its 1,097 cars and pickups have passed the obligatory inspection and have received permission to operate on the nation’s roads for this year.
The police agency said that through a glitch, many of its
vehicles were not licensed or otherwise up to standards when the year ended. The agency said that local auto dealers helped in making the vehicle road worth.
The agency had to spend 750 million colons or about $1.5 million for repairs and repair parts. The other 25 percent are still in the process of being repaired and being inspected, the agency said.
