Laugh out loud hilarious: Driving in Russia. Mrs Editor and I have recently been discussing our wild-assed fantasy about taking the Trans-Siberian Express from Moscow to Beijing. Based on this video, the train has to be safer than the streets. It’s 5:30 a.m. and I’m posting this story from Starbucks and all the other patrons are giving me strange looks because I’m laughing out loud as I watch this video. Do yourself a favor: Don’t watch it in public or people will give you strange looks, too.

I’ve seen things like that just driving down Rt. 128.

RT 128? Out of Boston? I was gonna say that except for the helicopter, a lot of this could be Massachusetts. My wife says summer hasn’t officially begun for her until she sees the first tourist going the wrong way away around the Bourne Rotary (the Gateway to Cape Cod, for you gentiles.)

But what I really wanted to know, Why do so many of these cars have dash-mounted cameras? They’re way to steady and clear for phone cams! Surely these aren’t all cop cars we’re seeing from?

kinda like watching America’s economy.

Loved, loved, loved the flyovers. Russian AF navigation?

also, proof that capitalism will destroy a nation. back in the day there wouldn’t have been so much traffic, well, auto-motive traffic, horse- and goat-cart accidents maybe.

Yes, but such an entertaining waste of time.

I was somewhat amazed at the flying parts that seem to come out of no where – parts flying off cars? Reminds me of some of the early races in NASCAR. 😉

Funny how “OH SH!T” sounds pretty much the same in any language.

My faves:
Horse in crosswalk, car covered in hay, Guy in crosswalk kicking a car, guy driving front end loader tearing up cars, guy trying to outrun trolley, Van with no rear wheel driving on road, two guys got out of their car and just walked away, guy passing a truck and sideswiping a cop car, dump truck with no front wheel!, guy walking up to stopped car and falling on the hood to make it look like he was hit.
I also notice that there seems to be alot of problems with trees and trucks.

Getting there is half the fun. Wonder how many were caused by sexual activity while driving.

Wonder how many were caused by vodka.

How many slow-speed crashes can you possibly have?? I love the one with the horse crossing in the crosswalk and the one where the two guys got out of their car and just walked away onto work.

I know now why the Russians built so many tanks.

This is a great and horrific at times compilation of traffic incidents. Remarkable how it can elicit the same responses as some awful movie scenes with no gore. The selections available after the vid include many more of the same sort, basically and a few of them are worth the time. Can’t hardly pause it, had to sit thru all 15 minutes because each scene is short and terrifying, then comes the next one. Happy Driving, America!
