    Costa Rican Motorcyclists Protest Insurance CoverageThe Costa Rica News (TCRN) – Dozens of motorcyclists demonstrated today through the streets of Costa Rica to demand broader coverage of an annual mandatory insurance charged by the government’s National Insurance Institute (INS).

    Motorcyclists protested outside the INS building and then toured the main streets of San Jose, where they caused some congestion problems.

    Currently in Costa Rica there are two types of coverage for motorcyclists: A three million colones (about $6,000), where the premium is $120 per year or over six million colones (about $12,000), which costs $154 annually.

    Motorcyclists are required by the INS to have the six million colones coverage, but the INS retains the fee was paid by three million, which the institution denied.

    The protesters, clustered at the Civic Committee of Motorcyclists, say utilities need to make the proposal viable.

    The general secretary of the National Association of Public and Private Employees (ANEP), Albino Vargas, told reporters they are waiting to enter negotiations with the president of INS, Guillermo Constenla.

    The insurance must be paid between November and December each year and is part of the amount settled by the law of circulation. (EFE)
