A little publicized fact is that the marchamosticker comes in two parts. Motorists are supposed to detach part of the paperwork and then use the provided sticker to fasten the small paper tab to the windshield. The deadline was Wednesday.
Amused police are stopping expats who are driving around with just the sticker on the windshield. The sticker is mostly transparent material. There have not been any reports of traffic police hanging a 47,000-colon fine on expats who made the mistake.
But there has been some laughter.
