Russian roads continue to surprise me. These shots were taken in Chelyabinsk city, but native Russian viewers commented that “it can happen in any Russian city, for sure”. Just take a look:
For some reason construction workers have dug a hole here, and they put no fencing around it.
And often street lamps are not working, so the driver probably was cruising around, pretty sure that nothing is going to disturb him, and then just imagine how he felt.
Another funny thing is that this car was left and nobody tried to remove it from this trap. According to the photos, it was the middle of the day but nobody came to rescue the car that crashed the night before.
Well, roads in Russia are a big problem, and every year the problem gets worse. Many roads were made in the Soviet era but nowadays they don’t receive enough funding to support them so they spoil even more. And another thing is that the roads in Russia are often made improperly, often the proper construction techniques are not being followed.
