Today is supposedly the last day that motorists have to submit their email address to the Consejo de Seguridad Vial, but so far only about 35 percent have.
The agency issued a reminder Tuesday and said that 455,000 motorists have responded to the request that was supposed to expire two months ago but was extended.
The requirement is in the new traffic law. Those who do not provide an email address will be notified of vehicle infractions via publication in the La Gaceta official newspaper, a process guaranted to escape their notice.
The process set up by the Ministerio de Obras Públicas y Transportes is not easy, A form can be downloaded HERE!.Persons with digital signatures can use it to submit the document to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Lacking a digital signature, a motorist can scan the document and provide a scanned copy of a cédula, said the agency. An alternate way of delivery is to hand the document in at driver’s license offices in the country or offices of the Policía de Tránsito, the agency said.
