A crack-down in Dali’s industrial area that began late on Sunday and continued into the early hours Monday saw 10 drivers being given citations within less than two hours.

The police presence put off many of the people watching in Dali–situated in the Nicosia district–with investigations also underway into whether some may be betting on the races.
