In a city with 11 million people, they have to park somewhere. It is very much a status symbol to own and drive a car here. Once upon a time, only the rich could afford them. As costs have come down, the numbers of drivers has increased. Traffic is quite hectic! People manage and are quite patient. On an open road they use every opportunity to go very fast, whether for the fun of it or race ahead of the pack before they must stop again. Our driver, Vladimir, was an awesome driver! It was fun being in the car with him. It didn't hurt he looked just like Sean Connery either! Vladimir was tickled by this.
