There Isn't Any Traffic in North Korea

This piece in The Atlantic on North Korea is fascinating. Lots of photos, which is novel, and the views of the infrastructure are amazing. There are clearly no cars, trucks or trains operating regularly. There is scant evidence of electricity. And the traffic cops, shown above, have nothing to do.

HEre is a whole YouTube channel dedicated to North Korean traffic bots.

That video is AMAZING.

"Very impressive. But why drop them out of the sky?"

And yet no footage of them actually falling gently from the sky with the metal shoes and the GPS and the Mary Poppins umbrella.
