I've been on it. The MKAD sucks. And no mention of the potholes and abandoned trucks on the side of the road.

And I bet that was an imaginary UFO hovering at the stop light.

""The situation became stable in two or three hours," said the official. "All the drivers had a chance to leave the ring road. There were many exits. There is no way they could just stand there for 16 hours."

The official acknowledged that one man had died, but disputed one report that he had fallen asleep in his car and frozen to death."

seems alittle weird...a guy fell asleep, froze to death in 2-3 yrs. ??? in a running car ?

Vegasj: maybe he died as a result of carbon monoxide. Sitting in one place, in a car, with the windows up for a long time can result in carbon monoxide poisoning.

It's nice that the traffic police have a 'department of propaganda'. =P

Traffic must be really bad over there.

russian people are funny. they drink vodka and eat russian food and listen to russian music and live in russia. to me, that's just plain un-american.

uuh... if it takes you 2-3 yrs, do you think it's freezing?

Of course it's weird to freeze in 2-3 hours. But if it was 16 hours it would be less weird. Russian goverment=liars. Get it?

16 hour traffic jam? That's a doddle.

After reading the article, I thought that it was more than A traffic jam that left one man DEAD?
2001-12-24 12:24:10 PM  
Perhaps it is wrong but I could not help but laugh when I read that article

Moscow says 16 hour traffic jam was all a figment of someone's imagination.

If only everything could be explained away like that. For example, Geraldo Rivera.
