It's the same video.

And overtaking on the right is NOT illegal (at least not most places).

Slower traffic should keep right - yes, even if you are doing the farking speed limit Aunt Judy.

On another note, I've always wondered why overtaking on the right is banned in a lot of places. It seems like the one getting passed should be one one getting the ticket because they're obviously going too slow for the fast lane

This way the police can write two tickets instead of just one?

This actually happened to me.

We were not on a highway, just going down a hill.

All 3 of us were in the front of a pick up, kinda high, when I look out the passenger window and say, "hey, isn't that the boat"?

Luckily it just took out a hedge and no real dammage.

It may take some time as they got a late start, but russian traffic shenanigans may one day catch cat videos in market share of the tubes.

Fake.

If that were really Russia, there would have been a drunk skier still holding the tow rope.

Seems to me like the camera car was pulling the boat and the trailer disconnected, he slowed down, it blew past him into the ditch, then he drove forward and stopped to check on it.

What is it with the Russians and the recording of their driving? My god, they're getting worse than the Japanese.

I've got two reasons for not believing that. One is that the boat is going *much* faster than the car. Had the camera car rapidly decelerated right before the incident, perhaps. But it doesn't look that way to me. The other is that he sits there on the side of the road for awhile, but when the turns the car/camera towards the boat, there's already someone alongside it, suggesting to me that someone else chased it down out of the camera's view.

/I only watched it a couple times, and I didn't study it for that, so don't tase me if I'm wrong, bro.

My understanding is over taking on the right is legal, however bring overtaken while on the left is not, in some areas. So the passer is fine but the passie gets a ticket. However the boat changes everything.

Not necessarily.

It was the one that caught the admin's eye when s/he was trying to clear the queue and green-light the next batch before getting back to the Makers Mark, Cheetos and BBW Horsey porn. It's all timing. I know how many pure gold headlines I have red-lighted in my submission list. I am no longer bitter about it, mostly.

But sometimes, late at night, I can hear them whispering to me: resubmit...resubmit
And I down another shot, throw the glass in the street in disgust and go back inside to watch reruns of Hogans Heroes and Uncle Floyd.

Oh, I know how it works. I just feel that someone with only one greenlight to show for nine years isn't in a great position to be complaining about other people's headlines.

The car was the one out of place.

If you watch it again you'll see the boat doesn't really pass him until just before he's stopped, he's already pulling over to the right a bit. The trailer probably detaches at around the 9 or 10 second mark which is about when he starts to brake.
