2nd driver arrested for drunk driving, 3rd for driving under influence of drugs

A 30 year old man was caught driving six times over the limit in Larnaca on the same night traffic police in Xylophagou arrested a 24 year old with 20 times the permitted alcohol.

Police said that the 30 year old underwent an alco test with a reading of 146mg%ml — which is six times the 22mg%ml  legal limit.

And at 2.30 am on Wednesday, Limassol traffic police stopped a car driven by a 39 year old on a central street for checks during which he handed over a small quantity of cannabis. He underwent a narco test, with a positive reading.
