The much maligned NMBS Company has launched an original way of putting itself in the sun despite the annoying delays, the cancellations and the dirty carriages. NMBS TV - yes, it exists - has published an English language video on YouTube in which an actor - tongue in cheek - calls for Belgian traffic jams to be given UNESCO recognition.
The video accompanies a petition that allows you to support the idea.
Not everybody is enamoured of this initiative and a counter petition and counter video have been launched seeking equal UNESCO recognition for delays on Belgian railways. They too deserve recognition the people behind the counter petition argue.
