Traffic police target motorcycles in stepped-up checks | Cyprus Mail

Police seized 19 motorcycles from their owners as part of a stepped-up campaign to prevent serious road collisions and noise pollution.

Limassol traffic police carried out traffic controls in city ​​and surrounding countryside, as well as in places known to be particularly dangerous, where fatal road collisions had occurred in the past.

During the controls, police confiscated 19 large capacity motorcycles, eight of which were located in the countryside near Agros, while a total of 64 bookings were made for various other traffic offenses.

Police also caught a 19-year-old man driving a stolen motorcycle, while he was found positive in a preliminary drug test.

Targeted traffic controls continue 24 hours a day throughout the entire Cyprus road network.
