KEMEROVO, Russia, Oct. 26 (UPI) -- A man in Russian said he won't pay a traffic fine because the upcoming end of the world in December makes the payment senseless.

Quoting those who claim the Mayan calendar predicts the world will end December 21, the unnamed man in western Siberia, fined 1,000 rubles ($32) after a minor traffic accident in Kemerovo, Russia, showed debt collectors a range of charts to demonstrate Doomsday is imminent, the city's website said Friday.

"The debtor believes that if people are kinder to each other and forgive each other's debts, the world will not end," the website reads, quoting the debt collector.

The ancient Mayan calendar cycle ends in December, prompting some to predict an apocalypse.
