Russia Says Do Not Drive on Melting Roads…

This is interesting…

Russia has introduced restrictions on the movement of heavy trucks on highways in summertime. At temperatures above 32 degrees centigrade (89.6 F), trucks are allowed to run on highways from 9 pm to 9 am. The restrictions were imposed in order to preserve highways in good condition and will be in force until August 15th…

Sveta and I saw a lot of this type of damage on the byways going to our village. In fact one area was so bad that we almost could not transverse it. The big dump trucks and delivery trucks to a building supply depot had rutted the road so bad that cars were bottoming out on the crown in the middle of the lane…

It was all caused by the excess heat last year. I guess that they build roads different in America, because it is hotter than 32 degrees centigrade most anywhere for months. But when a summer day is 15 degrees centigrade like it is today here in Moscow. Then you look at and do things differently…

The damage had been repaired the last time that we traveled to the village but I could see how they want to keep from constantly repairing these roads…
