Camera speeding tickets can be challenged to Oct. 18

Motorists who have been ticketed as a result of the speed trap cameras will have until Oct.17 to appeal. At least that is the current message from the Ministerio de Obras Públicas y Transportes.

The ministry said it would be publishing a list of license plates attributed to violators Wednesday in a national newspaper. Then the list will be published in Friday’s La Gaceta official newspaper.

Motorists will then have 10 working days to file their appeal. But because of holidays, the tickets will not be final until Oct. 18, the ministry said.

The ministry also has changed the rules on checking out license plates on its new Web page. The page is But it was not in service early today.

The ministry was requiring individuals to file a document with Radiográfica Costarricense S.A. and obtain a user name and PIN number in order to sign on to the page. Now it appears that motorists can check their plates simply by going to the page when and if it is in operation. If the motorist wants to see a photo of the infraction, he or she will have to submit a form.
