Here's one way to clear traffic jams – become the Russian President. The above picture shows you how a typical Moscow street looks at pretty much any time of day. It's bumper-to-bumper traffic as far as the eye can see. But to paraphrase Mel Brooks in History of the World, Part I
, "It's good to be the Pres." When President Putin has to get somewhere in a hurry, they make sure he can arrive in a timely fashion. The following photo shows how the same streets look when his Mercedes Limo and G-Wagen entourage comes idling through. It's a pretty dramatic difference, as you can see. And with no bystanders, there's virtually no chance someone will point and snicker
if you happen to break down. Food for thought, Secret Service.
