The Traffic Rules

1)The GAI will stop you and extort bribes if they feel like it.
2) Erm....nope that's about it.

what i meant to say is something showing traffic symbols, parking signs, etc with English translation so at least i can try to follow the rules and avoid the random results!:9451:

The signs here are pretty much like the ones back home, and those that are not are pretty instinctive. You should be ok (subject to what Gypsy said....the randomness of the coppers here) if you just use common sense.

I beleive you'll be rather lucky to get a 1000 ruble drinking driving fine these days...

I heard more likely from 5000 to 30000 and thats relatively a good price, as its considered a very serious crime.

In my book, not worth driving if you've had more than one.

I think we're mixing jurisdictions . . . that was $1,000.

You cannot rely on common sense for the traffic rules here. First what you think is 'common' is not neccessarily common. There is more than one legitamate logic scheme (not that I think all of the logic they apply here is legitemate). Second there are a lot of unwritten customary rules (lane sharing, etc.)
Try applying your 'common sense' to turning, either right or left, on a green light here in Moscow.
or try walking into traffic on a clearly visible and plainly marked crosswalk.
