Traffic Police in Ulaanbaatar

Far away view of traffic policeman in Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia

During peak traffic hours, the traffic policeman is a common sight. He ignores the lights to keep traffic moving “smoothly”. Well, as smoothly as traffic can move in a city with more cars than streets to run them on. Lack of street infrastructure (too few, too narrow) causes massive traffic jams. That’s why we walk!
