  1. Well done, but isnt it about time the Transportation committee and Police carried out checks on drivers usung their mobile phones whilst driving, thats the biggest danger on the roads in TRNC at present and would increase revenues considerably with heavy fines !

  2. This is a positive move. Hopefully it will help towards reducing road deaths and serious accidents
    Only people who do not folks the letter of the law have anything to worry about
