"Getting there by car" Taxis Tip by Leipzig

Taxis, Saint Petersburg: 12 reviews and 3 photos

  traffic jam
by Leipzig

Arterial roads are in a very good condition but in bystreets potholes are spread all over.
Traffic is hell in St. Petersburg - it seems there was a kind of competition between drivers. As soon as the traffic light turned from red to yellow everyone jumped on the gas pedal. Suddenly the crossroad was swathed in a black cloud of exhaust fumes and drivers run at breakneck speed, side by side with millimeters of separation to the next traffic light. And there the procedure repeated.
