"Be careful when driving or..." Cyprus Warnings Or Dangers Tip by Mark_Purdue

Cyprus Warnings and Dangers: 71 reviews and 49 photos

Be careful when driving or when a pedestrian. The traffic light system in use on the island is the same as in most parts of the world but the locals use is slightly different. They tend to crawl across the line when the light shows red, some just don't bother stopping. Basically when your light turns green just proceed with caution still looking around you.
As a pedestrian you have to be real careful. Crossing lights going to red does not mean that the driver will stop, just proceed with extreme caution.

Just be careful:
Red - proceed with caution.
Amber - means nothing.
Green - means drive like a nut case.

Follow those pointers and you will drive like a local.
