Traffic cops not necessary

In the Ukraine ALL traffic cops were fired in one fell swoop – and what changed to the safety and traffic situation? Exactly NOTHING!
Get rid of them here!

From his subordinates Yushchenko demanded – and received – a plan to dissolve the DAI and by the beginning of July the deed was done, the executive order signed.

Ukraine’s once-feared traffic police ceased to exist.


But that’s not the way it turned out. Drivers in the Ukrainian provincial cities of Donetsk, Dnipropetrovsk and Lviv reported traffic was moving quite normally and most drivers were obeying regulations, even though there were few, if any, traffic cops around to enforce them.
