Analyse This!

Just as he stubbornly defends his foreign minister Miomir Žužul (Miomir Zuzul), Sanader sticks by the most controversial and most unpopular piece of legislation of his tenure – road safety laws than ban drivers having a single drop of alcohol in their blood. This law, often referred as "Sanader's Prohibition", was often criticised for its unenforceability.

Those arguments are going to be strengthened with the arrival of new pills called Anti Polis. Pills, invented in Iceland, country famous for its prohibition of alcohol, and perfected in Russia, prevent alcohol from appearing in person's breath. This would create a lot of difficulty for traffic police during breath analysis and determining whether the driver has alcohol in blood or not.

Anti Polis pills have appeared in Serbia and are supposed to hit Croatian stores in two weeks. On the other hand, Željko Siemenšek (Zeljko Siemensek) from Sanitary Inspection of Croatia has announced that such pills won't be available on Croatian markets.

On legal markets, that is. Just like in 1920s USA, certain sector of Croatian economy is going to benefit from such bans.
