Driver ‘flying’ at 187 km on the Larnaca-Kofinou highway

 

A driver was caught speeding at almost 200 kilometres per hour on the Larnaca-Kofinou highway last night, as police intensified its nationwide road traffic campaign over the weekend.

The 21 year old was ‘flying’ at 187 kilometres per hour, compared to the 100 speed limit and was subsequently arrested.

He was charged in writing and will appear before a court at a later date.

In addition, there were two accidents in the Famagusta district last night involving two under aged drivers, 17 and 15 years old respectively.

They were driving mopeds that collided with vehicles. The minors did not have licenses and were not wearing helmets. They were injured and are being treated at the Famagusta General.

Police will increase patrols on highways this afternoon, as thousands are expected to return to the cities from coastal and mountain resorts.
