When is Junta General Prime Minister going to use S-44 on the RTP?
To make them doing their full duties, specially on the roads?
Something like traffic law enforcement perhaps?

Proof Reader have the day off???  In any case, hardly newsworthy...just two more idiots that have no idea about rules of the road, and no regard for personal safety.  They both deserved what they got for being so stupid, clueless and reckless. Since there is essentially no active police force, the roads are filled with idiots like these guys; thus, the #1 road fatality rate on the planet.
