Moscow Automobile Ring Road

Scattered away 1 000 ruble bank notes caused a traffic collapse in Moscow today.

A big traffic jam was caused by scattered 1 000 rubles at the 8th kilometer of the inner side of Moscow Automobile Ring Road near the region of Lyubertsy.

Lots of drivers stopped and picked up money, causing more cars to stop.

After examining the situation by the traffic police, it turned out that the bank notes were false. They were bookmarks with a print of 1 000 ruble on it. The police suggests it could be a well-planned ‘hooligan prank’.

Municipal services cleared out the road with road sweepers. The traffic was restored by 10 a.m.
