Police need to take blame also

How dare the police suggest that people should take more care on the roads while not accepting any culpability for the horrendous injury figures caused by severely bad driving frequently under the noses of the “officers” who should be duty bound, (without fear or favour,) to compel compliance with the laws governing Cyprus’ road traffic.  We’ve all seen drivers with children on their laps while using mobile ‘phones and other children in the car with no restraints, people parking on double yellow lines, on corners and on pedestrian crossings. People using right turn only lanes to jump the queue at traffic lights and others ignoring traffic lights altogether. Also, when did anyone last see a motorcyclist stopped and booked for not wearing a helmet?
You can introduce as many laws and regulations as you like but, if they are not enforced and not just on the expat’ community but across the board, the figures of dead, maimed and disabled victims will continue to rise.
