Traffic accidents in North Cyprus in the first five months of 2023 have reached the same number as in the whole of last year.
North Cyprus Traffic Director of the Police General Directorate İbrahim Ulusoy who spoke to the Turkish Agency Cyprus (TAK) said that, up until the end of May this year, 20 people lost their lives in traffic accidents in contrast to a total of 24 deaths last year.
Speeding and alcohol are the top two causes of accidents.
There are 120 fixed speed detection cameras throughout Northern Cyprus. In addition to speed cameras police are on patrol with random checks, Ulusoy said.
Stating that the police patrols are effective on the drivers, Ulusoy said, “Police patrols partially reduce the number of accidents”.
