Even More Proof the Surge is Working

Sure you’ve heard that deaths from the combat in Iraq on Iraq, but now the brave men of the Iraqi government are taking on a new enemy to save lives.

Later this month, traffic police officers all over Iraq will start issuing tickets to anyone who drives without buckling up. Violators will be fined 15,000 dinars — about $12.50. “It is part of the healing process of this country and of Baghdad to enforce the law, law by law,” said Brig. Gen. Zuhair Abada Mraweh, traffic commander for the capital’s Rusafah district.

I really don’t approve of seat belt laws in this country as I feel that it is an infringement on my personal liberty, but in a developing country like Iraq it makes perfect sense.  Seat belts do save lives and it is good to see the government of Iraq dealing with problems in such a constructive way.
