News From Russian Roads, Part 42

A Lamborghini Murcielago LP640 collided with a Chevrolet Aveo next to Nizhny Novgorod. The driver of the Lamborghini went over the speed limit and and lost control of the car that burned down to ashes. Nobody understands how two passengers inside the car managed to survive.

It took 3 minutes for asphalt surface of a road in Rostov-on-Don to fall into a huge hole that was 8 meters long and had an ideal round shape. Can it be the gates to hell?


What could happen to the driver of the truck who didn’t notice that his cargo was lost? Now the bricks are left on the road and the driver keeps driving on.

The accident was very unusual.

It seems that a layer was torn off the car.

If you are planning to rent a car to examine the streets of Vladivostok be careful while driving as hatches on the road can be found open.

The cover is absent and one may think it could be an isolated case until another hatch without a cover is found on the way.

If you talk about the accident to the local authorities you will get a promise to react immediately as this is the central street. But next day you can find out that nothing is changed and covers are still absent.


Local people are surprised at such a keen interest to the issue and say all the hatches are open there and are not supplied with hatches. Moreover, they are not bothered by the fact and got used to it.

No hatches.

The immensity of the disaster is impressive as open hatches are found all the time along the road. How can one drive safely at night?

The covers by the way are stolen by the locals who sell them at a good price. The entire city is covered with advertisements saying that iron is wanted badly.

Metal Wanted.

This cover is not stolen, it’s just broken and nobody is going to repair it.

–nextpage–People here drive slowly and carefully but accidents still happen from time to time.

Look at the other streets of the city.


Over 30 open hatches can be found along one street.


And how do you like the view?


For some unknown reasons the owner of the car disassembled it into two parts and managed to put the cabin into the bulk in spite of the fact the cabin weight was over 1 ton.

Now he can be sure the truck won’t be stolen. And what do you think about the transformer?

    The truck that lost the bricks was stopped when the picture was taken.

    You never paint a very good picture of Russian roads or drivers. I do not mean to be offensive, its just the way it looks.

    The grates in Vladivostok are obviously being stolen for their metal content. They should be replaced by concrete ones, as in the West.

    “…Nobody understands how two passengers inside the car managed to survive.”~~~Much Vodka, obviously.

    Yes, “they are not bothered by the fact” until they drive into one going 50.

    Sad thing is that Lamborghini is still worth more than my truck…

    I’m quite curious about the geological makeup of Western Russia and the Ukraine because the sinkholes appear to be much more common there than any other place.

      I’ve heard that Moscow is located on an inactive volcano.

        Like the hugely massive volcanic calderra that Yellow Stone National Park is sitting on you mean – there she blows !!

        Of course we are all actually standing, sitting and sleeping on an eggshell-thin crust above an entirely humungous lump of super-heated liquid iron. Makes yer fink dunnit.

    My grandma died due to such stolen hatches. She (quite healthy until then) was sitting on a bus and due to a bad bump she had internal hemorrhage. She was diabetic. Died in a week in hospital. Miss my grandma a lot. 🙁

    This summer when my city was flooding, the sewers backed up and popped the grates right off. it was not fun driving over them hahaa

    Too many low-based animals in the local populous.
