Paphos police HQ

Paphos police on Wednesday said they booked 65 drivers in 24 hours as part of a campaign for the prevention of crime and traffic offences.

The campaign took place between 6am on Tuesday and 6am on Wednesday, Paphos police spokesman Michalis Ioannou told the Cyprus News Agency.

Most drivers, 35, were booked for violating the traffic code while a total of 27 drivers were fined for speeding. Two drivers were booked for not wearing a seat belt and another for illegal parking.

No traffic collisions were reported in the last 24 hours in the district, Ioannou said.

Police will continue the checks daily, with checks during peak hours, when people go and return from work.

The aim of the checks is the timely intervention of the police in various incidents, to increase residents’ sense of security and trust in police, Ioannou added.
