When a police officer pulls you over you can expect him giving you a ticket, talking to you about driving safety or in other words people don't expect anything good when this happens. However if you are in Russia these days you can get pulled by a cop just to find out that he wants to present you a flower. Only if you are a woman. The road safe police these days give away hundreds of flowers to the random lady
drivers across the country, in an effort to join the celebration of International Women's Day - a holiday that is widely being respected in Russia. Holding a flower behind the back while pulling the unsuspected lady to the side of the road might be a bit cruel trick as all things she might have done wrong might circle in her mind until she finds out that this was not a reason for a stop.
