Minor traffic offenders to get plates back for Easter

As is customary at around this time of year, drivers who have had their permits or license plates confiscated by police for minor offenses will be able to reclaim them before Easter.

A decision by Public Order Minister Nikos Dendias means that plates or permits confiscated before April 15 can now be claimed by drivers.

This does not apply to drivers who have committed serious offenses such as driving under the influence of alcohol, breaking the speed limit or running a red light.
