A group of Russians dressed in a cardboard cutout of a bus tried to cross a vehicle-only bridge in the city of Vladivostok only to be “pulled over” by security. Video posted on Monday shows four people wearing the yellow cardboard cutout while walking on the side of a live traffic lane, trying to cross the Zolotoy Bridge.
The bridge has been closed to pedestrians since 2015 following several safety inspections. The government provided safety concerns as the primary motivation behind the rule, citing a number of suicide attempts and walkways that were too narrow to abide by transport and anti-terrorism protocol.
Video recorded from a vehicle shows the group walking the “bus” alongside traffic before a security guard orders them to the side of the bridge.
