Limassol: Man caught driving 18 times over alcohol limit

A 46 year old man was arrested after he was caught driving 18 times over the limit and without insurance in Limassol on Sunday night.

There were no injuries, but both cars sustained minor damage.

Traffic police who went to scene administered a breathalyser.

The 46 year old tested 170μg% instead of  9μg% which is the legal limit. They also found the car was not insured, did not have an MOT and had been declared as immobilised.

A second breathalyser test gave a result of 114μg%. The 46 year old was arrested.
