What would you do to get out of a traffic ticket?
This past summer a man in the Kemerovo region of Russia was issued a traffic ticket after getting involved in a minor auto accident. According to the Russian news source, En.ria.ru the man is hopeful that the Mayan calendar will end up getting him out of paying his small bill of $32.
The man, who has not been identified, wrote a 10-page justification of his decision not to pay the ticket instead of just paying the $32. The Moscow Times reported that “According to his calculations, the doomsday will come at the end of the year, and the payment would be pointless”.
Apparently the man has visited a court official every day with different types of drawings, graphs, and schemes in attempt to prove his point.
It has not been reported if the man’s efforts in attempt at getting the ticket dropped are working.
