Those road engineers just LOVE to build bigger, straighter roads, saying
the roads will be safer. In America we have more big, straight roads
that anywhere else, and 40 to 50 thousand people die on the roads each
year. So, don't destroy your rare and precious forest land because those
idiot engineers want to play on bigger roads. If Eastern Europe had had
more environmentalists and fewer engineers during the past 50 years,
you'd have a much healthier environment and a better economy.

It would be better to teach your people how to drive safely.
