Parking of a rented car in Larnaca
Parking lots are mostly paid in Larnaca. In working hours the cost is € 0.4-0.6. Double yellow marking means that parking is prohibited. Irrespectively of the time of the day, a vehicle must be parked in the direction of travel. Violation of this rule leads to a fine in the amount of € 85. A great number of narrow streets often cause the parking problems. If you rent a car for several days, you can park it in round-the-clock paid parking places for the night. Big hotels can also offer their guests parking spaces.
Blood alcohol content allowed
Blood alcohol level allowed by law is 0.5 ‰. In case of detecting a level close to the maximum one, a policeman cautions the driver. If blood alcohol concentration is 0.5 ‰ up to 1.19 ‰, it leads to a fine in the amount of 200 EUR. In addition, a driver is not allowed to drive a car further. A fine for blood alcohol concentration of 1.2 ‰ up to 1.6 ‰ is 300 EUR. If blood alcohol concentration exceeds 1.6 ‰, the penalty is fixed in the court.
To avoid any fines, it's necessary to observe general traffic laws. Don't forget to fasten a seat belt. If you travel with children, specify the necessity of a child safety seat while booking a car for rent in Cyprus. Pay special attention to the pedestrian crossings, because if you don't let pedestrians cross, you can be fined for € 85. Observe the rules of using the beep, as there are fines for their violation.
Using a cell phone, eating and drinking while driving are also prohibited. Foreign tourists often inadvertently run the territory of the pedestrian zones. This violation costs € 55. Pay close attention to the traffic signs and information plates.
