Traditional disregard for parking regulations among Spanish UN diplomats

Spain’s up at no 52 on the UN parking ticket corruption index, so that’s between the Ukraine and the Philippines, with average 12.7 unpaid violations per diplomat. The UK averages 0.0. Other crime news: Either the Azerbaijanis or the UAEers have stolen an “r” from Australia.

The data’s pretty old, so perhaps Spanish councils’ new zero-revenues, zero-tolerance policy will be filtering through. (Via Gregorio Luri)
