Russian Movement Opera Style

Perhaps you have noticed such a phrase as Op Style under the photos of unremarkable except for a bunker (zero tint around the circle) cars. Although we are not talking about any style. But the fact, that certain cars are called so, is a fact. Below you can read why and under what circumstances high cars in the bunker began to be called exactly Opera Style.


There was a time in Dagestan when there was a very active bandit insurgency, whose militants were literally at war with law enforcement. The Mujaids, as they called themselves, mainly attacked city patrols, blew up their cars with explosives, fired on them with submachine guns, and it often ended in the deaths of police officers, the lion's share of whom were traffic police and Patrol Police officers. Less often it happened to employees of other structures. This was a time when body armor was hung on the door windows of UAZ patrol cars and when the traffic police and patrol guards did not stop the cars unnecessarily, and at night they tried not to go into town at all.

At night they tried not to leave the city at all. They planted flash drives on them, demanding that they pay money. The sums were in the tens of millions of rubles. There were many cases where people were simply killed for refusing to pay. Murders of politicians, bureaucrats and religious leaders were also committed in the city, often to order.


Often these crimes, attempts and murders were reported in tinted cars. The assassins were able to carry guns, automatic weapons and explosives around the city without attracting attention at traffic lights and in traffic jams.

One of the solutions to this problem by the leadership of the Ministry of Internal Affairs in the RD was to remove tinting from all cars in the city, with the involvement of "mask show" for physical support during raids. This was around 2009-2010.


During the raids with the mask show, employees of the agencies were tacitly allowed to drive tinted. If a person showed a crust they were let go. Tinting was somewhat of a necessity for them and could save a life. It also helped the officers in operational work, in surveillance, and so on.

For the most part, the workers drove around in stock bunker suspensions and with various license plates in the trunk, which were necessary for conspiracy purposes, or with curtain frames, which with the touch of a button closed the license plates.


Tinting raids didn't stop; literally every day special groups went out on raids and stripped the cars, a lot of cars. Tinting fans, accustomed to driving in a bunker, could not imagine the possibility of driving any other way. So when they got caught in a raid and were left without a bunker, they tinted almost every day. If you ask them why they need it, they tell you there are many reasons. It's comfort in the car, no one is staring at you, and we love it here. Take into account the geographical position of the region, where the sun almost constantly shines, and in summer, tinting in general is very good to save from the heat, the burning of the interior and so on. On the stained Priora (conditional) no longer ride with loud music, all look in your face at traffic lights, not so comfortable in the car, plus it's not very nice when you go on a planted car, the car jumps from the bumps, and with it and the driver. But sticking tapes on every time and swinging with the cops every time isn't a good idea either, it was starting to bore the drivers.


On this wave, the guys gradually began to pick up their pozoterki, or sold them and moved to foreign cars. Seeing how the police freely drive with toner, the guys also decided to drive up, but with toner. Many chose between toner and boarding.

In the beginning, such cars were not really stopped, as was said above, the traffic cops thought that the officer was traveling. Hence the name "opera". Bunker, frame-blinds, special signal, strobe lights and a full drain on the outside, right down to the mudguards.


At a time when workers were tacitly allowed to use tinting, civilians caught with tinting could get away with one phone call to an employee they knew, if they had one. Sometimes they also turned a blind eye to this. But even this situation did not last long, and with each passing day the punishment for employees grew stricter and stricter.


In the end, the situation got to the point where the superiors in each agency forced their employees to remove their tinting. At the same time, the OSB conducted raids, which exclusively identified workers who took advantage of their position to drive tinted. If an employee was caught with tinted, he was reprimanded, deprived of bonuses, 13 salaries, and so on. Thus, the workers were gradually tinted.


Therefore, the employees of the traffic police, who can no longer drive themselves in a bunker, began to fasten and to this day fasten behind the bunker everyone and under any circumstances, without measuring, without the established order, without protocols, simply take the car to the base of the traffic police, despite the fact that to date the extremist gangs packed with weapons in the towns and villages of the RD almost never drive and therefore there is no reason to react to the tinting so
