The Lada pops up again with bad luck yet again. It was a very cold night around –7 C and the Lada started up without too much problems. After a few minutes warming the engine and clearing the snowed windows it was into fist gear and release the handbrake to drive away, but I wasn’t’ going anywhere. The brakes had frozen solid as the Lada refused to budge. It was another day for a taxi, money we couldn’t afford and a begging appeal for a lift home from one of my workmates. Another tip that was given was to not apply the handbrake in freezing weather and to carry a brick to stop the Lada car rolling on hills when parked in these weather conditions.
