Costa Rica introduces postal address system

Costa Rica has begun to reform its postal address system, which uses landmarks and directions instead of street names and numbers.

According to a study from the Inter-American Development Bank, the country loses an estimated $720m (£440m) a year in revenue associated with lost and undelivered mail.

The current system also causes problems for delivery workers — via redwolf.newsvine.com
