Moscow's Crazy Roads: Man Rides Shopping Trolley During Rush Hour

Editor's note: This video is part of a series. The Moscow Times will publish a selection of unusual incidents on roads in Moscow and the Moscow region in the coming weeks. Watch this space for more video clips.

Moscow motorists driving to work one recent Friday morning were in for a shock.

Instead of coming up against bumper-to-bumper traffic on the way to work, they came across a man leisurely riding a shopping trolley across four lanes of traffic near a tunnel to the north of the city center.

The incident, caught on one driver's dashboard camera, took place at roughly 9 a.m. on Aug. 3 on Prospekt Mira, not far from the turning for Ulitsa Kosmonavtov. It was not immediately clear whether the laid-back trolley-rider suffered any injuries in the daring stunt.

… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.

Your support, no matter how small, makes a world of difference. If you can, please support us monthly starting from just $2. It's quick to set up, and you can be confident that you're making a significant impact every month by supporting open, independent journalism. Thank you.
