Travelling for me involves public transport – taxi – or hired car with driver.
My first trip to St. Petersburg Russia was a shocker – no taxi after one hour – so arranged hotel to pick me up.
The most interesting aspect of all drivers – was the tendency to maintain a legal speed limit of 80 kph within the city district. Yes – even in winter – racing from one set of lights to another.
So fines increased for dangerous driving – and just driving is dangerous – yet what is ‘normal’ to Russians was a shocker to me.
Please note – the drivers have complained about the increase in fines – but puhleese watch the video – to see the driving examples highlighted – cringe worthy!
