Police to clamp down on selfish motorists

Nicosia Traffic police announced a campaign against illegal parking for the coming week, in an effort to clamp down on behaviour that endangers lives and restricts movement of the disabled.

The campaign, which will take place between May 11 and 17, is being organised in cooperation with the Nicosia municipality’s traffic department and the Cyprus Paraplegics Association.

Officers will target cars that are parked on sidewalks, pavement ramps, on pedestrian crossings, and in parking spaces for the disabled.

On Thursday EDEK deputy Roulla Mavronicola tabled a draft law proposal to hike the fine for parking in a disabled spot or a pavement from the current €85 to €1,000. The proposal was tabled to the House communications committee.

It provides that in addition to the higher fines, that offenders have their car towed and impounded, which the motorist would also have to pay for in addition to the penalty.
