WTF? Are they all drunk or something?

I just hope Pinky Tuscadero is okay!

I'd bet that if everybody in the US had a dashcam, we'd outstrip crazy Russian driving videos in a matter of days. I'd bet the US has more drivers overall and probably more accidents on a daily basis. This is a compilation of 19 accidents that could have taken place over three days or three years.

But to answer your question, yes. They are all drunk.

As I understand it, dashcams in Russia are all the rage due to the amount of insurance fraud taking place.

I did enjoy the two clips wherein the pedestrians didn't seem to care.  Two pedestrians are near wiped out, but they continue to walk on.  Snow tubing child causes an accident, oblivious to the entire thing.
 
2013-02-22 08:57:32 AM  
So what is the function of those little boxes with the red and green lights posted an intersections?  I thought they might be some sort of traffic control devices, but evidently not.

...was waiting for the tough guy at the end to get run over by a dump truck

Given the stupid crap I see drivers do around here, I'd have to say you are right.

Just think of what it would be like if they all had access to vodka like it was bottled water. :-O

I hope this is a joke.

Apparently red lights are merely suggestions in Russia.

Jesus Christ, how many of those were blown red lights? And not even "tried to stop" red lights, but full on "f*ck this" red lights?

I saw someone do that yesterday.  They were oblivious that they just went through a red light.  Fortunately I've managed to adopt the custom of looking both ways even when I have a green light, so I was able to keep out the way.

I like the box truck at 1:55 that just drives past the guy that has wrecked everybody else. "F*cks to you!"

This! ..Where I have to turn onto the highway every morning, I have seen several trucks hauling limestone not able to stop ...they sometimes have to blow right through a red at around 50 mph. After one of those close calls, you never forget to look even when it is green. I do that everywhere now.

Thanks for linking that crappy blog site "Dumbass Daily" because I much prefer watching it as a postage stamp-sized view.

Also, Fark might as well not embed YouTube into their own special page any more, since we can't go full-screen from their embeds (seems to happen randomly elsewhere)

As bad as that looks, if US drivers all kept video cams running in their cars then we'd be seeing a lot of the same stuff.

So...  Does the stare down at the end of this video happen in Russia or Taiwan?  Because this bit is the same entire video just one link down.

I is confused...
 
2013-02-22 10:59:45 AM  
So... the asian man is its own link right beside this link?

AWESOME video btw. No lame loud soundtrack, clear quality. Throughoughly 'enjoyed' it.

/those are always rough to watch

Cyclists.  Bikers are motorcycle riders and they tend to be very safe.  Cyclists, on the other hand...

And never a farking cop around when that happens too right?

FARK was watching Russian dashcam videos before it was cool.
 
2013-02-22 11:43:17 AM  
What struck me is that a decent percentage of the drivers made absolutely no attempt at avoiding a collision.  I've been in a number of similar situations where someone in my intended path either acted like an idiot or made an honest mistake.  Every time that happens, I make a good faith attempt to prevent the accident even if I would not have been at fault if I were unable to do so.

These folks, it seems like their thought process is "well, I have the right of way so I am legally obligated to ram the other guy."

Sounds like you need some red light cameras

/bet that once the cameras are known, the trucks can then magically stop

I meant cyclists.  All the motorcycle people I see seem to do the right thing.  (Except for one Detroit motorcycle cop I saw one time....)

yeah, life sure is hard.  I hope you find the strength to pull through this and managed to be a stronger person in the end.  Hang in there, it will get better

We should just require that in the US. For our safety.

edmo: We should just require that in the US. For our safety.


Just like most other countries now require daytime running lights and headlights for the last 20 years, and when I drive in the US (from Canada) , all I get are Americans flashing their lights at me telling me I have left my headlights on! LOL

lucksi: Sounds like you need some red light cameras


well the specific light I am talking about (for some reason I don't understand) seems to creep up on these trucks ...I think most of the time they just goofed up and simply can't slow down. They try to start a hundred yards back, but can't. With the kind of load they carry, it safer to blow through the light. I'm pretty sure that it makes their sphincter shrink up as much as anyone else... 

If they cause damage, bust em... Chances are they won't do it again the next time they have to slow down there (we have a lot of limestone trucks here).

I live around Boston, and pretty much most of the time, people are just about as bad as those Russians. But early in the morning, say like 05:00 or earlier? All bets are off. Red lights, "No Right On Red", speed limits, you name it. And I mean around residential areas. Pissed off because the car in front of you won't take a right on red when there is a sign saying you can't? Drive up on the sidewalk and go around, of course! One way streets? For pussies. Red lights? Just a suggestion.

There's one stretch of road, about a mile almost perfect straightaway, and along that road are well placed traffic lights timed to almost guarantee you stop at least once. It's a 35Mph zone. At 05:00, some people seem to think it's the Autobahn. When I turn onto that street, even when I get the green, I check both ways to make sure, because at least once a week someone blows through the light at a good solid 65, and not once have I seen a police car. But you can bet your ass that, one block over in the school zone with the flashing "20Mph Between 7AM and 9AM", if you're going 25 there is a cop right on hand to nab your ass.

I'd love to put a dash cam in if it meant I could submit the footage to the police and have some of the asshole drivers around here sent tickets in the mail.  See, in Chicago, the city police don't patrol the interstates because of some argument about revenues with the state, and the state police is far too small to have cops dedicated just to Chicago.  It's like farking Mad Max out there.

I took a trip to Moscow several years ago.  Driving, or riding in, a car was an adventure.  I always describe it as such: You know those lines painted on the road?  Mere suggestions.

The timestamps on the dashcam used here pretty clearly indicate three years. But with the sheer volume of compilation videos out there, it would be pretty simple to put together a compilation from a pretty restrictive timeframe.
 
2013-02-22 01:59:51 PM  
Some of what I saw didn't make any sense:
Doesn't it "feel" weird to make a left from the right turn lane on a three lane road?
Everyone is stopped up ahead? Must be stopped at a green light.
Everyone is going 45 MPH. I better go 70 and pass everyone on the left shoulder.

If you watch enough of these, you see tons of cars flip during a routine fender bender. Others go out of control for no reason. My guess is poor auto engineering and poor brake systems (tap brakes and one wheel locks).
 
2013-02-22 02:04:15 PM  
Russian Dash Cam would be a great speed metal band name.

Their songs could then be used in Russian dash cam compilations, and the cycle would be complete.
 
2013-02-22 02:21:42 PM  
Any one else notice that there are no yellow lines, and very few stoplights, even in the major intersections?

Yet I don't know how many tijmes I've almost been run off the road by some asshat with a "Start Seeing Motorcycles" bumper sticker on his/her car. What, once they're off the bike, they don't have to be "very safe" anymore?
 
2013-02-22 02:37:06 PM  
I love the casual nature of how people "over there" approach the aftermath of an accident...being a fan of these Russian dash-cam videos I find myself in hysterics watching how passengers just casually exit the vehicle and go about their day...leaving the car behind as if they parked it.

This just in: People in shock can often appear subdued.
 
2013-02-22 03:59:49 PM  
There is this very strange thing on my car.  A lever that if moved makes a clicking noise and makes a light blink on my dashboard, and maybe even lights on the outside, too.  I can't imagine what it's for.  I've never seen another car in Long Island use this feature.  So strange.

Despite our deserved reputation for being extremely aggressive motorists, Massachusetts drivers have fewer driving fatalities per capita than any state in the country.

There is actually an interesting red state blue state divide with regards to that statistic as well.

Where was that? Everybody I know realizes that some cars have their lights on all day and nobody flashes you to tell you your lights are on. And I've lived on the East Coast and the Southwest desert. I mean, why would anybody even care if somebody else's lights were on? They're battery powered and the battery is constantly getting recharged.
