Russia is using holograms to stop people from parking in disabled spots

It’s not often that we sing the praises of Russia, but this is pretty brilliant.

While every comedian pokes fun at the fact you never see anyone ever parked in the disabled spots, the Russian charity Dislife is making sure opportunists don’t park there in the rightful occupier’s absence.

By spraying a thin water mist invisible to the human eye and projecting an image of a disabled person into the middle of the bay, they've created a hologram to scare some sense into drivers chancing their luck.

And it works a treat.
