More than 70 drivers were booked for various driving offences during a police safety campaign on the secondary road network in the Paphos district on Wednesday night, while a woman who tested positive for driving under the influence of drugs was arrested.
A total of 115 cars were stopped and 73 drivers were booked — 43 for speeding and the rest for offences such as failure to renew their road tax, no insurance and not wearing a seat belt.
Moreover, a 28 year old woman was arrested after an initial test showed she was driving under the influence of drugs.
The woman failed to stop at a red light and was pursued and stopped by traffic police. They also found she did not have a driving licence or insurance.
The woman was charged and released pending the results from the second drug test.
