The Old &The New

I've observed the contrast between cars to be drastic. The roads are filled with boxy older cars (like the red one above) and newer sleek models, but not too many "in between". My guess is that there weren't as many automobiles purchased during the Soviet rule in Ukraine. The number of cars on the road has increased greatly since 1991, bringing major congestion to the main roads and highways. Ukrainian leaders are addressing these issues as Kiev continues to grow.

There is quite a contrast here. We still see a few of the older cars on the roads here but not many. After awhile I think it costs more to keep them running, than they are worth.
