Angola is a traffic scofflaw!

Here's an interesting blog post from the NYT's City Room. It talks about the diplomats in NYC missions who abuse their immunity and rack up huge fines parking violations.

On a top-ten list, Angola is at number 10, owing the City of New York $421,505.63! Bad, but not as bad as Egypt, which owes almost $2 million.

Diplomatic plates are also notoriously bad drivers, second only to the cabs in the area. Now if they could only find a way to lump cab drivers in that same category as "diplomats", they may be on to something.
