Want To Lose An Hour Or Two?

Step Two: Search for "Russian Car Crashes".

Step Three: Lose at least an hour on videos like this:



Yikes. Remind me to NEVER drive in Russia. Ever. Under any circumstance whatsoever...

That is all.

There's a reason there are so many dash cameras in Russia...

Russian drivers. And vodka. And corrupt police.

Oh, yeah.

Russian drivers, vodka, substandard roads, vodka, ice and slush on the road 8 months out of the year, vodka, crappy eastern European automobiles and tires, vodka.

Having done just what you warned of... I have taken two lessons from this...

1. If you MUST drive in Russia, drive a tank. They apparently have the right of way and fuck you people.

2. Do NOT drive in Russia without a firearm. Sumbitches are crazy over there.

Also, I love how many road-rage fights are ended by the driver behind honking and yelling something (presumably "Get the fuck out of the way asshole" or an equivalent) and the guys involved in the fight are all "sorry, sorry" and get back in their cars.

So... it's ok to dive out of your car in the middle of the road and beat the snot out of somebody because he drives like an asshole but not to hold up someone else to do so?

No, because then it makes you the asshole. Can't have that.

One think I noticed, nobody stops to help, they just drive on...

The dash cams are also to help avoid getting scammed by fake "pedestrian" accidents. The have a lot of videos that show the person looking directly at the car and timing their leap out into traffic to hit the side of the car.

Daddybear, you forgot to mention Russian mechanics.

We did not fix breaks? Okay, we fix whole car instead.

All finished. Do dna!

I spent two weeks in Russia for a school thing in highschool. You don't want to be a pedestrian crossing the street in Russia either....

Why do Russians like dashboard mounted cameras?

I can only assume that every Driver's Ed class in Russia employs nothing but old T-34s for student vehicles. The number of straight, dry-road crashes is amazing.

Apparently, the Russians did not invent the breathalyzer.

Boy were you right. I spent way too much time yesterday looking at Russian car wreck videos. They were like potato chips, "Just one more".
