Inspections reveal one in three cars with foreign plates illegal


The Independent Authority for Public Revenue (IAPR) conducted extensive inspections in Greek cities last month and found that almost one in three cars with foreign license plates was illegal.

The nationwide operation was conducted by IAPR customs officers on June 9-11, with the aim of establishing the legality of vehicles with foreign plates, whose numbers have been on the rise.

The customs officers carried out checks at selected locations, mainly in bigger cities, and within the three days inspected 312 vehicles, of which 97 were found to be illegal; those vehicles were confiscated.
