Handicapped Parking In Costa Rica?

Handicap parking space with removable barrier.

Most of the handicapped parking spaces that I have seen in Costa Rica have a removable barrier in front of them. I don’t understand the rationale for this. In one place there was a security person and he would move it if someone drove up and qualified to use it. But other places I haven’t seen anyone around to provide that service so I’m not sure what a person does…

  1. Re your comment about handicapped parking…have you seen special hang tags or license plates to designate handicapped drivers?

    1. Neither Dan nor I remember seeing/not seeing placards or handicapped plates although I think I remember that the one time the person pulled into the space after the guard removed the barrier that there was something that identified the car as being used by/for a handicapped person. I tried to do a quick search on the general topic but didn’t find an answer to your question or mine.
