Traffic police in Minsk in the Republic of Belarus have apparently adopted a new tactic in the War on Drunk Driving.
According to a news release yesterday from Russia Today, police were ordered by superiors to stop a reported drunk driver on a highway. Their solution: they randomly stopped four cars and forced the drivers to line up in a row across the highway, forming a human wall. The occupants of the vehicles — including a 3-year-old child and its mother – were not told the reason. The drunk driver’s car smashed into the human fence, bursting into flames.
For a film clip of the TV news story and video of the crash, see the YouTube segment “Police Use Human Shield to Stop Car”.
