Russian Traffic Ice Ballet

Residents of Vladivostok, in far eastern Russia, woke Friday morning to snow-covered roads. The snow hid a layer of ice, which drivers soon discovered. Oh, you could go places, as long as those places were downhill. Police received reports of 350 accidents in one day, some involving up to twenty vehicles. 

The Russian news site has 19 videos taken of traffic problems due to the snowstorm. You can vote on which is best in a poll at the bottom. I particularly like #19, in which a camera was focused on a hill across the street.
