The mayor of Panama City is looking to hire areas to use as public parking lots.
Due to the fact that of the 30 lots found by the Mayor for renting out to be used as parking lots only one of the owners has shown interest, the institution is still searching for places to establish parking spaces in the city.
Several factors have affected the brewery: the depreciation of the colon, the real estate crisis, the purchase of Kern’s and Pepsi, and the Draconian transportation law in Costa Rica.
“If you drink don’t drive, if you drive don’t drink.” The new transportation law of Costa Rica, with rigorous sanctions that could even include the seizure of vehicles for drinkers behind the wheel, has caused a reduction in the consumption of beer. This is added to the depreciation of the colon, which has generated losses due to the exchange rate, and a greater participation in the project Reserva Conchal that naturally has been affected by the real estate crisis.
The law that was approved increases traffic fines and establishes stricter sanctions for those who break the law.
The plan also includes sentences of six months to eight years of jail for manslaughter cause by a traffic accident.
The plan also includes a system which gives each driver 50 points on his license. Whenever he breaks the law, points will be deducted proportionally and the license could even be suspended if negative 50 points are accumulated.
