Banks causing traffic chaos in Paphos – in-cyprus.com

Paphos residents with homes near banks have accused branch customers of regularly causing traffic chaos with parking violations.

According to residents, the bank branch customers often block off driveways, park on double-yellow lines or pavements, and create a backlog trying to find somewhere to leave their cars.

The residents say the problem has become worse since after the crisis led to the closure of some branches – prompting some bank branches to either move to different locations or even merge with other branches and bringing a higher volume of customers to specific locations.
Most of the bank branches still in operation are now situated on central and busy roads without adequate parking.
