A 36-year-old man was caught on Thursday night on the Limassol to Nicosia motorway driving at almost 200 kilometres per hour.

Officers signalled the driver to stop near Skarinou but he apparently ignored them. He was doing 196km/h, almost 100km over the speed limit.

He was eventually stopped near the Alambra industrial area.

Officers found out that the 36-year-old was not the owner of the car, whose road tax had expired last July. The car’s owner was a passenger in the vehicle.

Both men were led to the local police station where they were charged with a number of offences.
