Paphos police issued 26 complaints over traffic violations during a coordinated 24-hour campaign, with most of them concerning Incidents of drunk driving.

According to Paphos police chief Nicos Tsapis, 11 out of the 26 complaints were issued to drivers who were driving under the influence of alcohol, two concerned incidents of drug driving, while the remaining complaints concerned other minor traffic offences.

Tsapis added that the coordinated campaign also yielded one arrest, where a 35-year-old man was taken into custody as part of an investigation into a string of burglaries and break-ins in the Paphos district.

Furthermore, Tsapis said that due to the prevailing adverse weather conditions, the police also conducted checks on the condition of the road network, ensuring that drivers could carry on unimpeded, before concluding by saying that the traffic violation campaign would continue.
