    The dash cams are very popular over there, probably to help with insurance claims, etc.

    Lots of other good ones on Youtube, too.

    Unbelievable!!!!!!! Pretty amazing that the semi-driver was able to snake his way around the old lady pylon walking acrossed the highway, with out running her over. Except it looked like he should have swerved to the right of her instead of the left. Loved how she changed direction and went back the way she appeared to be coming from. Considering how many semi accidents there were, they must not require CDLs or have much regulation on who gets behind the wheel of one. Most of them appeared to be poorly skilled drivers.

    Unfortunately, police corruption is also a leading cause. People get pulled over and are falsely accused of violations. Unless the driver pays the official, they are fined, or taken to jail.

    . . . AND THEY WALKED AWAY!!!!!!!!!! :)

    I think Rick's Vodka theory is very plausible. Did you all notice how the people who are in these wrecks and the pedestrians who are almost hit are calm, as if they are in a stupor?

    It would seem the Russkis have a method to cope with bad leadership, LOL

    Boy, that was hillarious. I wonder what their insurance rates are like. They probably don't have those breathalizer deals on their cars and trucks.

    I especially like the guy who got thrown out of the windshield of the truck and lands on his feet!
