Road safety and health officials will be meeting today to announce a plan outlining the current situation involving motorcycles in the country.
The meeting comes after a weekend in which at lest six persons died in motorcycle accidents. They include two motorcycle drivers who died after a head-on collision early Sunday on the highway between Sixaola and Bribrí in southeastern Costa Rica. A woman passenger was hospitalized, and investigators said they still did not know what happened.
Weekends usually see a handful of fatalities involving motorcycles.
The meeting today also will involve officials from the Instituto Nacional de Seguros, the state firm that insures motorists.
