I'm guessing in Russia driver education is nonexistent and DUI is the SOP.

Some of those people in the videos act like it's a normal thing.

Some are so close it seems it would almost have to be staged.....but who'd do that...especially one there was children involved.

That clip where the guy crawls through the windshield of his smashed Lada after hitting a semi is really spectacular!

Happy Motoring, Mark

This video makes it seem like this stuff happens all the time . Be grateful for all our laws and infrastructure I guess . The world is a scary place . Look how there are so many pedestrians walking in traffic and how the cars go into other lanes and on coming traffic .

This is what happens when most of the drivers are drunk instead of just texting...see texting isn't that bad!
