antidisestablishmentarianism: Before someone asks, lots of Russians have dash cams to fight insurance fraud.
AbiNormal: If only they had taken their foot off the brake they would have been able to steer.
Malivon: Also, they provide a form of entertainment...so long as no one gets hurt. Once someone gets hurt, it isn't entertainment anymore, but a tragedy.
StoPPeRmobile: People are dumb driven by habit and instinct.
Any Pie Left: Would she have had any better results if she had thrown the sliding car into reverse and gunned it?
Vegan Meat Popsicle: Malivon: Also, they provide a form of entertainment...so long as no one gets hurt. Once someone gets hurt, it isn't entertainment anymore, but a tragedy.That really depends on the who, why and how of the injury. Bad people hurting themselves in amusing ways during the commission of wicked deeds, for example, is still entertainment. Reference: the Russian guy who tried to hijack a trucker and wound up getting his ass whupped and his car flipped upside down by a whole convoy of them instead.StoPPeRmobile: People are dumb driven by habit and instinct.I have a hard time criticizing people who get in unusual situations like this for their reactions. The initial thought is "HOLY shiat GOTTA STOP". How do you stop? Brakes. What do you do? Smash your feet on the brake pedal.It's like people who get into a skid or hydroplane and suddenly slam on the brakes. Well, yea, probably not the best idea in most cases, but the natural reaction is to want to stop and that's how you stop, right? It takes a certain amount of practice to overcome that natural reaction.
strapp3r: my civic would do the same thing if i didn't pop on two winter tires each winter/twin cities
Crewmannumber6: Interesting to learn that the russian for 'Uh-oh' is 'Uh-oh'.
Kangaroo_Ralph: Damn a damn Russian. Any one of those guys could have stopped that car from sliding down the street, but they just look on.
HST's Dead Carcass: Living in Colorado, these types of videos should be mandatory to watch before getting behidn the wheel in the winter. Too many jackholes from warmer states come out here and get a 4wheel drive and think they are invincible vehicles./dumbasses
toetag: I loved the sound of the emergency brake. It's not gonna help.
Bill_Wick's_Friend: 8 minutes of car-crushing mayhem mayhem mayhem in Denver Denver Denver(lots of NSFW language)

bikerbob59: I thought that was in CO Springs.
styckx: This year, ya know.. If it was Oct 23rd, 2011..
Bill_Wick's_Friend: Car vs snowplow blade at 4:19 and serious crrrrrunch at 5:00Why do I get such pleasure out of watching these videos? I'm not really a sadistic person....

kuli: I'm Norwegian and getting a kick out of this.Don't you have any kind of driving education before you get to drive a car in the US?/snow tires//release the brakes///steer////if it seems like a bad idea to drive up or down that hill, it probably is.Thats all.
Cluckity: What an intelligent person would have done, given the looks of that hill, is found another way around or waited for it to be cleared (or at least waited to watch another vehicle go ahead of them). At minimum, get out and check the road conditions on a hill that size before you start down.You don't have to worry about how you'll react in those situations if you don't put yourself in them./over 2 million kilometers on Canadian roads//slid off the road a few times, but no one ever got hurt and never wrote off a vehicle
Sensei Can You See: bikerbob59: Bill_Wick's_Friend: 8 minutes of car-crushing mayhem mayhem mayhem in Denver Denver Denver(lots of NSFW language)I thought that was in CO Springs.It was. That hill is about 5 blocks from my house. I successfully drove both up and then back down the street in the video about 20 minutes before the video was shot -- in a Dodge Intrepid.Whoever said Colorado has too many drivers from warm states who think a 4x4 makes you invincible was exactly right.
