Spent a lovely week Feb 27th to March 6 traveling by SUV from San Jose to Arenal to Monteverde to Panama Beach on the Pacific Coast. We were stopped on Route 1 going to Liberia from Rio Grande (about 30 minutes N of there) by the transit police after we passed on a broken dotted line with other cars and trucks and pulled back in on a double line. We were told the fine would be $440, or could we settle then? He did not give an amount and someone in the car said $100 and he sai d OK. I do believe we were targeted as there were 4 people (blond in front) in a rental car with GPS on windshield. The 2 lane road has much slow moving traffic and not much time to pass. The Costa Ricans pass whenever they like. DO BE EXTRA CAREFUL!
