THE NUMBER of people driving without insurance is on the rise due to the crisis, and has been on the up for two years police said on Monday.
In the first six months of this year 1,428 drivers without insurance were charged. “Over the weekend another 47 people were found driving without insurance” traffic chief Demetris Demetriou said.
Police on Monday began an clampdown, which will run until August 4. Cars found without insurance coverage will be impounded, Demetriou warned.
“The driver will be taken to a police station and the car will be held until the driver can secure a valid insurance,” he said.
