Bulgaria's Road Massacre Deja Vu

Editorial |Author: Nikola Petrov | June 17, 2011, Friday // 11:44|  views

More than 22 000 Bulgarians, or what is approximately the population of a medium-sized town, have been wiped out in traffic accidents on the country's roads over the last 20 years.

Occasionally, a terrifying car crash takes place claiming more victims than "usual". Then, the Bulgarian authorities announce a national mourning day, like after Wednesday's tragedy which killed eight people.

Ministers pledge to enforce extreme measures for road safety and strict technical requirements for bus companies, introduce sober campaigns and whatnot.

The same procedures take place once every couple of months – whenever the next road massacre happens. Meanwhile, the overall "war on wheels" dead toll continues quietly but constantly climbing.

The whole "it is high time we introduced some measures" talk is obviously going nowhere. A remarkably vast percent of Bulgaria's drivers are retards who enjoy like hell, often under the influence and driven by their inferiority complex or God know what defects. If we add the terrible roads, the corrupt traffic officers and the careless administration on all levels, we have a recipe for an endlessly repeating horror scenario.
