In India we have the same problem.All govt dept's including the law keepers do many more things than what you have said.It is a joke now.Read this.
Kuttan - visits his friend kunju who was a school drop out.seeing his rich flowing from nook and corner asks how he made so much money.
Kunju - I joined politics and the dam you saw on the way was built by my contractor.He had to get my certificate for the quality of construction.He had to give me a share of his profit and I got rich like that from many such projects.
Kuttan goes home and completes his diploma in civil engineering and invites after some time his school drop out Kunju to visit his home..
Kunju comes and is wonder struck as to how a civil engineer can make more money than a politician and asks kuttan what is the secret of his huge wealth.
kuttan asks his friend if he saw a dam on his way to his house.
kunju says there is no dam on the entire stretch of the river he passed.
Kuttan says that is the secret.All projects I got was fully completed on PAPER and nothing was built actually.
This is a JOKE in real here.
All roads are maintained on paper in most of the places if I can say so.
