    Yup. It looks like that the cars are piling up (again) in the Finnish border since the russians are just too tangled up with their paperwork. This is typical mentality of the russians – they want to transfer the cars trough Finland because it safer that way.

    And it also looks like that its not that long lines there on this particular day – normally the waiting lines can be as long as 30 kilometres long.

    My God! So many Hondas!

  7. Mortal Light says:

    Those cars are brand new. Some still have the white protective covering on the hoods. They are probably being transported from a plant or to dealership.

  8. matvey says:

    Thats under Moscow (about 50-60 km from town).
    And those cars are all new, coming straight from factorys.

    p.s. Population grows in a city on 300000 persons per month.

    Russia is struck severely with the financial crisis.

    Many many people are being fired and the end is not near. Some people turned overnight from filthy rich to homeless.
    Their businesses are mainly financed with loans. The banks see that the company’s shares are dropping [Moscow stock market dropped 80% this year] meaning the companies value dropped, meaning the collateral for the loans is worth less. So the bank demands extra coverage for their loans.
    Extra money.
    Which is not there, because the majority of these people liked spending so much that there are no reserves at all so the only thing left to do is to sell everything of value or go bankrupt. Pawn shops in Moscow are popping up everywhere and have to deal with rich people’s gadgets like diamond studded handbags [yes, men in Russia have handbags, too] and expensive sports cars.

    So I think these cars will not sell that fast. Money is tight and the economy is declining fast.

    I want that song, now.

  15. Oscar says:

    wow. so many cars! I think that there are more than 600.

  16. Project 84 says:

    Lotsa cars, anyone know what they’re listening to in the car?

  17. Jason says:

    In Soviet Russia cars drive you!

  18. Texas1 says:

    At least these cars look better than the homes that get repo’d. They all appear to have their doors, windows, light fixtures and everything else intact.

  19. Joo says:

    Actually that isn’t bad.

    You should check out the Finnish side,
    sometimes there is 50km of trucks just waiting to cross to Russia. The lines are there because the Russian border control is so dam slow. But I quess it’s the Russian way to handle stuff.

  20. Jan says:

    I think this is between in finland to russia E18 road. I see many times about 50km longs car truck lines..

  21. adios says:

    я не понял,это машины из России или в Россию?

    To Webmaster:

    If you run a English language blog, at least make an effort to learn proper English grammar.

    1. Too MANY cars
    2. Exported INTO Russia

    Садись 2!

    • BaBoKa says:

      To David:

      Don’t poking them pls, or do your part of the effort:

      […]run aN English[…]

      And anyway: it’s not an English language blog, it’s a blog on English language! Can you feel the difference?

      Yeah, don’t be a twot–correcting everybody, you’ve got a lot of work to do if you want to be the world’s english professor. If you e’er read anything worth while, make it Ambrose Bierce’s ‘The Devils Dictionary’; you’ll learn something about the inane semantics behind the english language.

    • o4tuna says:

      Give the guy a break. You should read some of the early posts, his English has Greatly improved. Pictures are still fascinating, too.

    • Chris says:

      Your English grammar is also incorrect David as you said “a English blog” whereas you should have said “an English blog.” Thus, you are nothing more than a filthy hypocrite.

  23. anthax says:

    There are Bentleys, Lamborghinis, Porsches and other supercars in those trucks too. They just sit and wait in finnish side. Eastern-Finland is great place for car spotting 🙂

  25. Пашка says:

    actually is grammatically correct to say “too MANY cars” much is used for uncountable things such as water, milk etc etc..

    Truck traffic at the the Finnish-Russian border has been increasing at an annual rate of 15 to 20 per cent over the past years. Every day the number of trucks crossing the border at Vaalimaa, Nuijamaa and Imatra border crossing stations totals approximately 2,400 (both directions included). At Vaalimaa alone the total number of trucks crossing the border is approximately 1,300 trucks every day. There is major variation in the volume of cross-border truck traffic between different seasons, weekdays and hours of the day. As there is not enough handling capacity at the border for periods of congestion, occasional queues occur.

    The Finnish Ministry of Transport and Communications has carried out an extensive review of measures that could be taken to make Russia-bound traffic smoother and to improve traffic safety. One of these measures is increased provision of information.

    This website presents the latest available information about traffic jams on the roads leading to the border. The length of queue is shown with a red line on the road, providing an approximation of the situation on the road at a specific time. Situations naturally change very quickly, so the information cannot always be totally up-to-date. This site also shows when the temporary truck parking areas on the motorway between Hamina and Kotka are available so that other road users can also better prepare for the situation and allow enough time for their journeys.

    It has been noted by regional authorities that building up of the truck queues follows a rather consistent pattern. Queues occur regularly at Main Road 7/E18 and this is also where the problems caused by queues are most severe. Authorities advise that freight traffic operators and drivers note the traffic jam situation when making route decisions. When queue at Vaalimaa border crossing station is between 15 to 20 kilometres, it is advisable to utilise capacity at other border crossing stations (Nuijamaa and Imatra). Authorities hope that this arrangement will contribute to the efforts made to alleviate the problems caused by queues of trucks on the roads leading to the border. The development and production of this service has been carried out in cooperation with regional and local authorities.

    That must be the financial crisis. ^^
