Driving offenders to get reprieve for August national holiday
As of Tuesday, drivers who have had their permits or license plates confiscated by police for minor offenses can reclaim them ahead of the August 15 national holiday.
The Dormition of the Virgin holiday is traditionally when the majority of Greeks set off for their summer vacations, many traveling large distances by road.
The measure does not apply to drivers of cars, scooters or motorcycles who have committed serious offenses, such as driving under the influence, speeding, running a red light or driving an uninsured vehicle.
