Police to hold urgent meeting about traffic accidents

Police chief Kypros Michaelides has scheduled an urgent meeting with police officers and officers of the traffic department at noon on Monday to discuss fatal traffic accidents in recent days.

The meeting was announced after seven people died in the past eleven days in fatal accidents, the latest on Sunday evening.

During the meeting, the actions taken so far to prevent serious accidents will be evaluated and any difficulties officers have encountered and measures to improve the situation will be discussed.

On Sunday police issued an urgent call for a change in the behaviour of drivers.

“We must change mindset, culture and mentality as regards our behaviour on the road and the way we look at driving more generally,” police said.
