And join Erdogan's recipe for anything going wrong to accuse not only the EU, but also the US and international conspiracies, and ofc some enemy from within. I watched some street interviews yesterday in Istanbul in the turmoil of the elections there this week.... Erdogans party lost in Istanbul in the first count... they are now recounting the votes... it was just amazing how "well" these people repeated Erdogan's accusations. They really believed it. We have in NL the discussion now to reduce the max speed for cars in towns from 50 km/hr to 30 km/hr, for fewer and less severe accidents. Currently roughly 70% of the streets, the smaller streets, is already limited at 30 km/hr. The parallel idea triggering it, is to push all e-scooters, e-bikes, etc, away from the bicycle paths and lanes, to the car lanes for more safety on the bicycle lanes (the amount of those e-vehicles increasing and you don't hear those silent fast driving e-scooters behind you). Now... some municipalities are going to test that and many boards of municipalities would like to do that as well, and do likely represent a majority of their citizens for that action, but they fear the "angry citizen" protests, their votes, etc. So they appealed to the central government in the Hague to decide it by the Cabinet and make it into law if the tests would be succesful. But such decisions are the area of responsibility (within some wider central frames ofc) of the municipalities. But yeah... it is so much easier to use a higher entity for something you want, and blame them.... than to take responsibility yourself and saddle yourself up with the inconvenience of explaining it all to your own backyard.
