A 34-year-old will have to spend 20 days in jail and pay a €1,300 fine after traffic police officers caught him driving with a suspended licence and without insurance, Famagusta District Court ruled on Tuesday.

The man was caught driving at 76 kilometres per hour in an area where the speed limit is 50 last January in the Famagusta district.

Upon further checks, it emerged he had had his driving licence suspended by the Larnaca district court for an earlier infraction. He was also driving an uninsured car.

The Famagusta district court also suspended his driving licence for an additional 12 months and put two points on his licence.
