Confiscated plates to be returned for Greek elections

As of Wednesday, drivers who have had their permits or license plates confiscated by police for minor offenses can reclaim them so they can vote in the upcoming general elections.

This does not apply to drivers who have committed serious offenses, such as driving under the influence, speeding, running a red light or driving an uninsured vehicle.

Any drivers seeking to reclaim their plates must have paid any unsettled fines.
