Solving traffic jams

In spite of the impression Crossing Cambodia in some cases might suggest Cambodian authorities do take traffic issues very serious. At least that’s what Crossing Cambodia deduces from yesterdays newspaper (Cambodian Daily, Wednesday, June 21, 2006).
'Fifteen hundred mostly female garment workers marching to the National Assembly....'

They were met by:
'Police, some of whom were carrying AK-47s....
The police operation ensured security in the capital and prevented traffic jams, he (Municipal Police Commissioner Touch Naruth) said'.

Considering traffic jams are becoming more commonplace and this trend will continue in the coming years, will the traffic police be equipped with AK-47 and electric batons to avoid Phnom Penh becoming another congested Asian city?
