Moscow's Crazy Roads: Enraged Motorist Makes a Stand

When a Ford sedan equipped with a blue flashing light carved through the traffic on the way into Moscow last week, the driver of a black car behind thought he'd seamlessly sweep past a line of slowly moving cars himself.

But before he could do so, a BMW driver cut in front of him and ambled along no quicker than the rest.

At the next opportunity, the driver of the black car sped in front and remonstrated with the BMW driver. A nearby motorist — whose dashboard camera captured the entire incident — then appeared on the scene, giving the driver of the black car a sharp push and appearing to threaten him.

After checking the BMW driver was OK, everyone returned to their cars and the gridlocked route into the capital.

Moscow's Crazy Roads:

… 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.
