If during this year's stay in Crete you plan to move intensively on the Nowa Droga (Βόρειος Οδικός Άξονας Κρήτης, BOAK), we recommend driving in accordance with the rules of the road. In particular, this warning applies to exceeding the permitted speed. The Greek Police informs that drivers traveling on the New National Road, the main communication hub of the northern part of the island, can take into account the presence of more road patrols.
The current intensified controls are part of a nationwide campaign to improve security on Greek roads. Only last week, from 2 to 8 July, nearly 17.5 thousand were controlled in all of Greece. drivers. For over 1/3 of them, the meeting with the police ended with the receipt of a mandate. In Crete, a total of 420 seats were issued, which in most cases concerned exceeding the speed limit
On the occasion of the publication of this information, the Greek police also announced that a similar intensity of control is to be maintained in the following weeks. It is worth having it in your memory while sitting behind the wheel of a rented car.
