Personal data captured by traffic cameras up until Monday to be deleted from system

Drivers captured violating traffic regulations by traffic cameras on a pilot phase in Cyprus between October 25 and Monday (December 20) will be getting a warning only through the mail.

And their personal data will be deleted from the system, something that solves the raised legal issue on their violation.

However, as from Tuesday and up until January 1 when the pilot phase ends, violators won’t be paying a fine but the report will stay in the system, according to Philenews.

On October 25, law enforcement authorities re-launched a number of mobile and fixed cameras to monitor traffic, promising the public that fines would not start being issued until January 1, 2022.

Essentially, a two-month grace period for violators to get used to the system and receive proper warnings in the mail was granted.

In just a few hours of operation, hundreds of violators were caught by the system on day one.

When the system is in full operation, it will include 90 fixed cameras in 30 spots island-wide plus 20 mobile ones.
