Right Wheel Monument Opens in Vladivostok

A memorable bas-relief to the right-hand-drive car has appeared in Vladivostok.

      The city dwellers have suggested the idea for several years already. The author of the project is artist Pavel Shugurov.

      The point is that the Russians living in Vladivostok, as well as in the Russian Far East as a whole, generally drive Japanese right-hand-drive cars.

      The bas-relief made on a wall of a house depicts a seaman holding a steering wheel of a foreign car in his raised right hand, and a wheel from the Russian car in his left hand. The signature under the bas-relief says: “Forever right!” According to the Far East customs office, after the introduction of protective duties in January 2009, the number of imported foreign cars has dropped off.

      At the same time Vladivostok saw a whole series of mass actions in protection of the “right” wheel.
