Don't abandon car in motion, says Cyprus motor code

NICOSIA (Reuters Life!) - Drivers in Cyprus have been told not to abandon their car in motion, or wave their hands and legs out of car windows.

This piece of advice is given in a new road safety code in the first major revamp of guidelines on driving practices in decades, the Phileleftheros daily reported.

With many known for driving with one hand, children bouncing about unrestrained in the back of vehicles and parking on pavements, the new code also sets out guidelines on how to use the much-loved horn.

Beeping will be prohibited in residential areas.
