One man in Moscow decided to take action regarding flashing blue rooftop lights found on the civilians' cars. Those kind of flashing blue rooftop lights are found only on official government vehicles that gives drivers the right to speed and cut traffic at will, but some drivers think that they are above the law when it comes to cutting through Russian traffic by using the flashing blue rooftop lights, illegally of course.
Accidents involving cars with the lights occur in Moscow weekly.
There is a video where the Russian man demonstrates his distaste for this. Leonid Nikolaev, a member of Solidarity, Russia's leading opposition group, staked out a street corner until he saw a VIP car pull up. The car had flashing blue rooftop lights and was trying to make use of it to bypass traffic. The pedestrian, sick of this, put a bucket on his head, he ran up to the car and walked across it. The car's owner, reportedly a member of the FSB, Russia's secret police, was not amused. After that, Nikolaev disappeared for several hours, unreachable by telephone, only to turn up at a local police station. He has been charged with hooliganism.
Take a look at the video and enjoy!
