Respect Speed Limits!
The police are out and about a lot more these days. Sometime you wont't know they're waiting to catch you speeding.
The majority of speed limit signs in Cyprus are in Kilometers only.
Here's an example of converting Kilometers to Miles
50 kilometers is a fraction over 30 miles. It too easy when on holiday to think a 30 speed sign is 30 mile per hour, its Kilometers - snails pace!
Motorway Signs are in Greek and English
Make sure you belt up!
Wearing a seat belt is a must – you will most likely get caught by the police and have to pay a hefty fine. Its not worth the risk! Nor worth
It is an offense in Cyprus to use your mobile phone while driving. The fine is 85 euros at present!
The police are very active on the roads these days so don’t drink or eat or use your phone while driving.
Beware of Smoking in the Car
Many rental car hire companies are introducing no smoking in their cars.
And on a personal note...
A friend of ours was stopped by the police for smoking in his car while his child was travelling with him. They fined him 35 euros! So Beware!!
