Russians sure do love their dash cams over there. First the meteor, now this. Who knew they were so big over there.

And why?

From what I've heard a lot of insurance companies require them, to prevent fraud.

Their insurance laws are completely farked and they need them to prove whose fault it was in an accident.

Worthless insurance (if any) and corrupt officials. Footage wins.

It's been explained over and over and over.  But I'll try to keep it simple.  They exist mainly to protect the owner from two things:

1) Corrupt cops
2) Insurance scams

They have them to protect themself from insurance fraud.  A buddy lived in Belarus for 4 months and would not drive (the company gave him a Benz to drive).  Took the bus or cab because Russian drivers don't pay attention to traffic signals, lanes, road signs and basicly all are drunk.

They show the videos to each other in social gatherings like vacation snaps.

2013 is really shaping up to be the Year of the Russian Dashcam.

The latter is a common misconception. Most Russian drivers are not actually drunk. They are simply posses a magical combination of belligerence, apathy and lack any understanding of the laws of physics.

So...it's an insurance issue then, lulz. Glad I asked, apparently I'm the only one who didn't know

Now that the mystery of why Russians have dashcams has been solved, anyone want to take a crack at why the link doesn't just go to the site with the video?

Jesus Christ. Do they just hand out drivers licenses over there?

I love the Russian dashboard cam clips. Russians sure can't drive.
The Bus clip was pretty good as well. I sometimes feel like doing that.

On a similar topic, am i the only one having problems loading youtube videos the last few days?  It's like I'm on dialup.  And you pause it so it can load and it doesn't buffer.  Only on youtube this happens too.

I think we need to start a movement to get all Americans to install dashcams, because I likey all this crazy footage. Plus, it keeps our cops honest, too.

Difference: having to listen to Americans flip out about everything.

I know people say Texans can't drive in snow, but if Russians can't then who can?

I'm sure someone will come along any minute now and explain it all.

I've seen the dash cam videos for their cars that they drive on the ground. All I can say is if this ever takes off (in 40 years) and get's going the dash cam videos on you tube are going to get very, very scary / interesting.

Yes, seriously. I asked my students about it once, and all the men and everyone old enough to have driven during the Soviet Union had taken a real driving exam. All the women readily admitted that they just paid someone for their license. So yes, they really do

Ok, I'm starting up a new TV show "Russian Dashcams". Between the meteor and the flying cars, thats more entertainment I've had on 300 channels of TV for the past month.
