"Mluvčí prezidenta slíbil víc dopravních zácp."

This is a very peculiar thing for a politician to promise!


Maybe an oblique reference to a real-life political situation? I've read that traffic is a big problem around Prague, but that in 2018 the (now former) mayor of Prague said it wasn't so bad and called people "zpovykaní," apparently meaning whiners, spoiled brats, which got people angry.


I take it as a sign of social development: people are bored because they have nothing (or at least not enough) to complain about.


DISABLING AUDIO CHALLENGE: "zácp" sounds as if it were "zácépel".
