Four traffic officers have been detained on allegations that they failed to arrest drunk drivers in exchange for bribes.
One incident involving one officer took place in March in San Pedro, said the Judicial Investigating Organization. The officer was investigating a crash in which a vehicle collided with the wall of a home.
Two officers are under investigation for a similar incident in January in Curridabat. A fourth officer faces a similar allegation based on an incident in San Antonio de Desamparados.
