Ukrainian President Abolishes State Traffic Patrols, Says Corrupt Agency "Discredited" by Covert Use of Speed Cameras

Ukrainian President Viktor Yushchenko announced he would fire regional police chiefs and eliminate state traffic patrols — saying their clandestine use of speed cameras "discredited" them. The President said he insisted the traffic police — rated the most corrupt state agency in the country (they have ratings for that?) — stop "hiding in the bushes" with traffic cameras, but they continued to do so.
