Police clamp down on speeding

Police are conducting an island-wide campaign for speed limit enforcement as part of an EU-wide drive organised by TISPOL, the European Traffic Police Network.

Cyprus will see a total of 90 checkpoints in operation until April 26, in an attempt to clamp down on dangerous driving, one of the most serious causes of road deaths.

“The speed marathon is all about prevention. We want drivers to think about the speeds they choose; speeds which are both legal and appropriate for the conditions. By doing so, they will be reducing the risks they face and the risks they pose to other road users,” TISPOL chief Aidan Reid said.

In Europe the campaign, titled ‘Slow Down Europe’ will last from April 13 – 19 with 22 participating countries.
