Vladimir region governor’s motorcade almost provokes an accident
Sipyagin’s press service could not promptly comment on the incident.
A motorist from the Vladimir region has filed an appeal to bring State Road Traffic Safety Inspectorate officers to justice for an incident that took place on the M-11 highway on the road to Nizhny Novgorod on February 7. He published a video showing the Inspectorate’s car escorting Governor Vladimir Sipyagin almost provoking an accident on VK.com. The video shows his car being jammed by a patrol car, an accompanying crossover with the license plate А 001 МР 333.
“The patrol car catches up with us; we let it pass and switch lane right behind it... Then he goes nuts on the road, hitting the brakes, drifting on the snow-covered highway, shouting insults at us. It was the State Road Traffic Safety Inspectorate of Vladimir showing its true colors,” the author of the video commented on the incident.
In the comments to the video, local residents recognized the Toyota with government license plate, which was accompanied by a patrol car on the highway, as the car of Vladimir Region Governor, Vladimir Sipyagin. Life.ru's sources from the local media employees confirms this information: The car was bought under former Head of the region, Svetlana Orlova.
That day, Sipyagin traveled to Vyazniki, where he visited a nonwovens enterprise and met with the region’s business community. Sipyagin’s press service could not promptly comment on the incident.
