Stolen posts are a new highway mystery

Some of those flexible  posts that are being placed on the center line of  Ruta 32 lasted less than 48 hours.

Traffic engineers said Thursday that someone risked their life and took time to unscrew some of the posts to steal them.

Others appeared to be the victim of vandalism. They were damaged.

The posts are seen as a way to reduce head-on crashes on the key highway that leads out of San José to the north and then to Limón.damaged061215

The posts have no commercial value, and them mystery remains as to why someone would take the trouble to steal them. The  Dirección General de Ingeniería de Tránsito said it filed a complaint with the Judicial Investigating Organization.
