Day of the motorist
You have a car or even a driver's license? If there is, you have all chances to get the congratulation on the last Sunday of December. On this day the Eastern Slavs celebrate the Day of road transport workers, or simply the Day of the driver.
And the introduction of such a celebration is not unusual and even not just an excuse to paint another day on the calendar in red, it just need more time to celebrate one of the most important inventions of mankind ’ s car.
I can't believe that the ancestors of modern "Mercedes" was just a wagon. Trendy machines became part of our routine, but without the electronics we imagine only bike. And even then with some difficulty!
Few people know that the first series production automobiles appeared in Russia in 1908 (more than a century ago!). They were distinguished by high reliability and stability, has won the long runs and rally.
The Soviet Union is also considerable attention was paid to the automotive industry. What is the first "GAS-AND– 1932! A "Win"! New design, develop, shape - this is really a victory for the Soviet people.
In the postwar years the cars closely into the lives of the Soviet worker. They were used in almost all spheres of life and economy.
We take into account a lot of information about the transport system of the Soviet Union, for the simple reason that the Feast of the Driver was founded in those days.
Now he, as everyone knows, is celebrated¸ but a little differently: exhibitions, concerts, competitions, races and many other events. Of course, drivers accept congratulations and at the same time think about the problems that we still need to overcome.
The low quality of Russian roads causes a slowing of the rate of delivery of cargo and passengers in emergency situations on the roads. The use of cars poor fuel causes air pollution with heavy metals and carcinogenic substances. Therefore, our government is trying to gradually migrate road transport to higher quality fuels, as well as working to improve the condition of the roads.
But despite all the problems, the number of drivers is constantly growing, and, I think, the Day the driver is a good reason to buy a car for those who have not yet done so.
