Following the "pull over" order, the offender is instructed to deflate all tires. This punishment is found particularly effective in dealing with owner-drivers, mal« and female, and is equipvalent to a period of really hard! labor or a fine of at least 10 shillings—the cost of getting some one to pump up the tires on !he. spot. ] There is something Gilber- tian in making the punishment fit tho crime so neatly and tho number of accidents in the streets of Zagreb has fallen very considerably.
