News From Russian Roads, Part 38

Posted on August 5, 2011 by kulichik

Seeing such a policeman at work drivers are hurrying up to decrease their speed.

But coming closer they understand that what they deal with is a plain plywood model that is intended to substitute for real policemen who might be having rest at this present moment.

No matter what you may think of such an invention it works as drivers decrease the speed in order to avoid problems. However hardly they will buy next time…

Some time an awful accident happened on this road. But evacuation of the broken car is also a sight which is intended for the weak-nerved people.

Let’s hope that nobody else will be injured during the transportation!

This masterpiece of art was assembled by its owner manually without the use of any high-tech instruments and named Valentina after his wife.


How do you like the car?

An inventor from the Russian town of Kaluga turned the old car into a flying object that could accelerate its speed to 90 km an hour and rise into the air staying 200-300 meters above the land.

Such skills as rising into the air and landing can be well-trained with the help of this ‘plane’.

The inventor wanted to demonstrate that his construction is reliable and simple in usage.

Nobody knows what the super-vehicle was made of. According to some experts, it is a nice example of how Opel Kadett can be decorated with pieces of plastic.


This car was overloaded with stuff to such an extent that was broken into two parts. What kind of goods might it have inside?

‘Let me have another worm and we’ll fly’

What is it you are worrying about when you leave your car on a parking lot? It may be anything including hijacking. Among the things mentioned, in Russia you will have to guess whether your car can be flooded when you come back or not.

    90 KMH? That’s about 55 mph! You need to go a little faster than that to become airbourne, let’s see it fly.

      Depending on the wing and the weight, you can get airborne in a stiff breeze. In training, we took off at 30 knots(60kph,40mph).

    That “Valentina” car looks like something from the Death Race movie. Awesome job!

    That car with the steel body may be nice to have in an accident, but it’s kinda ugly (it’s got a big “nose”) and I’m sure it’s gonna get horrible gas mileage, being made of HEAVY STEEL and all. Why not fiberglass? Anything, but steel. Nice effort though.

    Yeah, I’m disappointed there was no pictures of it flying. Valentina is awesome.

    Not really a safe place to drive.

    That plastic “Opel Kadett” i’ve seen in my city Dnipropetrovsk (Ukraine). It is awful.

    Some cops in the US use plywood decoys too. But they also put a real patrol up the road from the fake one to catch motorists who speed up when they realize the one they saw first was a fake!
