Oh great, so to ease congestion they aren’t going to have ridiculous unmanned roadblocks every few miles that create huge jams, and to prevent accidents they are going to police the roads looking for offenders as they tear about drunk, driving the wrong way and running red lights? No? More of the same then this year .....
