New Designated Driver Policy a Sham

    In response to the article published today entitled “Designated Driver Program Kicks off this Weekend” I would just like to say that this is an obvious ploy by the INS to get policy holders to buy more insurance without really providing more service. The stipulation that the service can be used three times a year for people with cars under six years old and only once a year for people with cars old than that is ridiculous. The vast majority of the cars in Costa Rica are older than six years and those that own a car under six years old probably will probably just pay for a taxi.

    Most of the people who would use this service are going to be in the 18-25 age group as they are the most likely to be out drinking enough so that they are too impaired to drive. They are also the group that is most likely to have the least amount of money and thus be driving cars older than six years.

    While this is a step in the right direction, in my opinion is it a pretty thinly veiled attempt by INS to get publicity and more money without really addressing the problem of drunk driving.
