He was intercepted by traffic police.

When traffic cops in Moscow intercepted an expensive car driving down a road in the suburb of Rublyovka, they were oblivious the driver had over 2,000 violations in his name with 184 unpaid fines.

The string of road violations emerged after the driver was intercepted by traffic police who discovered his driving licence had expired. The rigid driver refused to step out of the car and cops had to break a window to grab him out.

The video of the incident was posted online by the Interior Ministry posted online and shows the cops breaking the window of the car and arresting the driver. The man was taken to a police station where it was revealed that he already had 184 unpaid fines, reported BBC.

"An Odintsovo town judge in Moscow Region handed the driver seven days in detention, after which he will be held accountable for not paying the fines," Moscow police said. However, the nature of traffic violations committed by the driver remain unknown.

Russia is known for rash drivers as the World Health Organisation (WHO) ranked the country 104th out of 175 countries in 2018 in terms of the number of road deaths. According to official statistics over 14,300 Russians died in traffic accidents in 2018.
