The Ministry of Works and Transport in cooperation with Telsim mobile phone company have signed off on a project titled ‘Mobile phones are for talking on the phone not on the road’.

Together they have established a dedicated area on the Nicosia-Kyrenia road near the Ciklos area which will allow drivers to stop to use their mobile phones. The project foresees establishing similar lay-by areas in other districts.

Minister of Transport and Works Hasan Tacoy said despite not being able to reduce the number of fatalities on roads as they had wished, awareness had statistically increased. He said a number of road traffic accidents were related to drivers using mobile phones whilst driving.
