    Traffic police were on the alert on Sunday in the country's national highways and urban regions so as to facilitate drivers and pedestrians in view of the Carnival celebrations and the Clean Monday religious holiday. Traffic measures are being taken in central Athens and the suburbs, ports, railway and bus stations and airports to facilitate pedestrians and vehicles. At the same time, traffic police are posted at all the main junctions of the national highways, while police patrol cars and motorbikes are stationed in the Attica Basin for the prevention of accidents.
