Owners of older cars in Sofia, Bulgaria are playing havoc with the city's traffic as they line up for new EU-approved license plates, in some cases waiting in lines four hours long and creating hazardous traffic conditions. Brilliantly, in a city of nearly 1.4 million people, authorities have set up one station where the plates can be obtained and then cut the deadline back by 9 months. The communist system may have fallen apart, but y'know, bureaucrats always learn to adapt.
