Police sweep of buses seek failings for disabled

The Policía de Tránsito, some disabled persons and representatives from the Consejo Nacional de Rehabilitación
y Eduación Especial were out in three locations in the Central Valley Tuesday morning checking to see if buses complied with a law providing access for those with physical handicaps.

More than three dozen bus drivers got 150,000-colon tickets, police said.

Police will repeat the inspections today at Parque Desamparados. The inspections Tuesday were in La Uruca, El Coyol and in Heredia.

Seating for the disabled is supposed to be clearly marked in buses, and there are various other accommodations the law demands.
