DRIVING IN RUSSIA...
Being up to the north of Russia in the last few days - at least as far north as one can get in a few days. And at least as far north as the road conditions there are allowing it...
|One of the best streets up north...|
It's in German, but in a nutshell it tells about somebody who tried to steal a whole road in northern Russia.
*Man has stolen Russian road
Dismantled a total of 82 concrete panels with a crane truck
Moscow - In a night action a 40-year-old man tried to steal an entire street in the north of Russia. The thief had broken down with a crane truck a total of 82 concrete panels of a highway as the police in the Republic of Komi told. During loading of the items on truck riparians became aware of the man. The police arrested the road thief at a traffic control.
The stolen plates that connected the village with the River Partscheg, would have a value of 200,000 rubles (4,500 euros). The thief faces two years in prison. In Russia road parts such as gutters keep disappearing and are sold to commodity traders.*
Taking into account the road conditions up there I somehow Ihave the feeling that it was not the only road that was stolen... ;-)
