    Russia is fucking crazy and scary. It's like the wild west but worse.

    If you look at the way they drive around, they clearly don't give a fuck what happen to them or others. I bet most of them are drunk as well.

    I actually commend the driver at 0:45 for counter-steering properly, allowing him/her to somewhat control the slide and straighten out before hitting that person or anything else. This was not a "fail" clip but one in which someone did something right when things got a little squirrely on a snowy road.

    And the rest of it... well I dunno because I only watched up until about a minute and then I assumed it was all the same kinda shit over and over.

    Any developing country will be a clusterfuck. Try driving in India when you have 18 wheelers, cars, tractors, motorcycles, bikes, and bull carts all on the same road :facepalm:

    People drive like crazy people in this part of the world (Former Soviet States/Russia). There's a mentality that if you don't drive aggressively then you aren't doing it right. So you'll have instances of people driving on sidewalks, driving on the other side of the road, and driving in snow like it's nothing.

    I just got a car here after being here for years and I'm afraid after spending my life only driving in the States.

    The Asians do some pretty fucked up driving, too. It's like all the shitty countries don't have any traffic laws or even a consensus on common sense stuff. What's really fun is the rag heads, though. Daddy's oil billions buys them a new high-end luxury sports car, and they just floor it until it's totalled, killing peasants and camels and gawd knows what....then they go buy another one. It's like watching a 4yo play GrandTheftAuto.

    They're obviously all drunk on Vodka. Best one was the people going through the windshield at 7:20.

    It must have alot to do with the weather. Cold & wind can make people angry.

    I filmed myself driving up 23A to Hunter in the snow on Saturday. Almost lost it on a left turn when the front wheels lost traction and sent me towards the guardrail but I reeled it in and kept going.

    It's gotten really easy with these GoPro cameras. You can program it to record a number of timed intervals and then it just stops and records over what was shot in the previous interval. If you happen to catch something good, just pause the recording.

    My father went there a couple of times for his work. He told me many crazy and scary stories about cab rides there.

    Yeah it's crazy how fast they drive on these frozen-over roads. Just death wish shit.

    They never seem to check their mirrors in Asia.

    You can't get insurance over there without a dash-cam. That's why there are so many Russian car crashes on the Internet lately.

    There are many cameras made for the specific purpose of recording in your car:

    I have been watching these a lot on youtube, and cannot help but wonder 2 things, first, why do most russian people have cameras in their cars, and second, why do they race into an intersection with such reckless abandon? Oh, I do like the russian cursing once they hit.
