Commenting article: Sofia to Ban Horse-Drawn Carts For EU Presidency

Bulgaria's capital Sofia is drafting plans to rid the common sight of creaking horse-drawn carts from its streets in an effort to brush up its image for the country's EU presidency from January./

"The carts pose a serious risk for road accidents, they litter and, above all, no European capital allows them, apart for attraction purposes," Sofia City Council member Simeon Slavchev, who initiated the ban, told AFP on Thursday.

Under the current regulations, horse-drawn carts are only allowed on Sofia's outskirts but poor control of the restrictions makes the four-legged means of transport a regular sight even on the busiest downtown streets.

What a crock of shit. They would be better off banning cars from Sofia, the world would have a much higher opinion of them.
