1000's Of Fake Driving Licences In Bulgaria - Accidents Galore the Result

Bulgaria's transport minister said the country's high accident rate is because of tens of thousands of people who obtain drivers licenses on the black market.
Speaking on bTV Tuesday, Alexander Tsvetkov said for as little as $200, citizens can buy a fake license without any exam or road test, the Sofia Echo reported.
He said the estimate of as many as 20,000 people buying fake licenses each year is "very modest" and the real number he is aware of is "truly alarming."
"In the European Union, Bulgaria leads when it comes to fatalities in traffic accidents," the minister said.
Tsvetkov said previous governments had done nothing to combat the corruption.
"As of summer 2009, however, we have initiated radical changes and I can say that in the future this problem will be fixed," he said. "Some amendments to legislation have already been enacted, and the black market will be stopped."
