World Car News #Update
Police in the canton of Vaud, Switzerland have announced their intent, saying they will tolerate the continuous blast of car horns for a one hour period after World Cup football matches so that fans can express their “joy or disappointment”.
In a statement outlining security protocols for the month-long tournament, cantonal police said it was inevitable there would be post-match processions of cars, with fans beeping their horns “in a continual manner”.
They further stated that though they were not fully in favor of such processions, the acts would be tolerated as long as traffic and public order were not affected in an “exaggerated manner”.
In terms of supporter noise and horn blaring from cars, the Swiss police have promised to be “indulgent” but only to an extent: “the limit was 60 minutes,” they said in their statement.
Armed personnel will be deployed in specific and sensitive locations where fans are gathered, especially around giant screens, to ensure and maintain sanity and discipline in public places all through the tournament.
