This happened yesterday. I included a 2nd video where you can see a truck carrying fireworks exploding.
Russians are pros at disguising their number plates to avoid paying for parking. They have devised a few ways of hiding their registration from the street cameras and it seems like almost anything will work including tape, socks, CD’s, gum etc. Surprisingly, parking only costs $1 or $2 so it’s a bit funny that people driving expensive cars such as Mercedes Benz’s or Bentley’s would go to this extreme to avoid paying the small tariff.
