“The problem has not been solved. The traffic police is blocking the
maintenance vehicles that deliver firewood and food and take out the
trash. Yesterday, the acting chief of the city traffic inspectorate
promised to quit interfering with our cars, but the obstruction
continues,” Averchenko said.
“And so our actions at the State Traffic Inspectorate head office
will take a more radical turn. They are getting in our way all the time
and we are wasting our time struggling with traffic cops,” Averchenko
The State Traffic Inspectorate explains Maidan’s delivery problems by
the need to have a special permit that allows trucks and special
transport to enter the city center. Therefore, traffic police officers
constantly stop vehicles carrying firewood and food and maintaining bio
toilets on Maidan.
