Traffic Discipline Very Slack In Helsinki

Road accidents are on the increase in Helsinki, and in particular there are signs of deteriorating traffic discipline in the capital region. While the empirically observed number of violations is quite obviously on the increase, the authorities are concerned at the impunity with which people run red lights and exceed speed limits. There are calls for an extension of the zero tolerance policies applied recently on Highway 51 leading west from Helsinki.

Damn those evil Finns and their poor driving.

They are well on their way to becoming the pariahs of Europe!
