MOSCOW, July 2 (UPI) -- The governor of Russia's Moscow Region said people who are tired of traffic jams should trade in their cars for helicopters.
Moscow Region Gov. Boris Gromov told reporters Friday recent large-scale traffic jams on the Leningradskoye Highway were the jurisdiction of Moscow city leaders, but he did offer a solution for residents, RIA Novosti reported Friday.
"I travel in a helicopter," Gromov said. "You should also buy helicopters instead of cars -- then you will not need roads."
Gromov said about 400 residents of the Moscow Region own helicopters.
