Deadline extended for motorists to register email addresses

April 24, 2013

The Roadway Safety Council (COSEVI) granted a two-month extension for motorists to register a personal email address that will be used to receive reports from that agency.

The deadline for complying with the requirement, known as a driver’s DEV (Dirección Electrónica Vial), was previously set to expire on Friday.

The DEV will be the only direct method COSEVI will use to inform all drivers or car owners about violations of the traffic law, rulings on appeals to fines or any other relevant issue, a press release stated.

COSEVI added that those who fail to submit a DEV by June 26 will be notified through a publication in the official newspaper La Gaceta.

To register a DEV, you must download and complete a form from COSEVI’s website (www.csv.go.cr). Those who have a digital signature can submit the completed form to the email: DireccionElectronicaVial@csv.go.cr

Printed forms can only be submitted to authorized offices at the Traffic Police, RITEVE (technical vehicle inspections), the Public Works and Transport Ministry or at COSEVI’s main facilities in La Uruca, northwest of San José.

“Motorists who do not provide an email address cannot argue that they were not aware [about a fine],” COSEVI stated in the press release. The requirement to provide the information is established in the new traffic law that took effect on Oct. 26, 2012.
