I've seen enough of these Russian dash-cam videos to know I never EVER want to drive in Russia.. the standard of driving there sends shivers down my spine every time I watch them.

Aye. Not only that, but the amount of wheels that just fall off. I would never trust their cars. :|

I'm sure you could make a best of video like this for north america and it would be has funny as this one.

I've seen once in Quebec City an old man doing a u-turn on Robert-Bourassa Highway (100KM/H speed limit) to take an exit he just missed. He literally put the foot on the break pedal while the guy behind him was driving at probably 110 KM/H. The guy behind was barely able to avoid him by going in the adjacent lane. Had a car been in the other lane there's no way the guy behind was able to break in time.

Im not sure.. been driving about 15 years and have only seen 1 or 2 accidents. I know dumb drivers are everywhere to be found.. I just dont understand the concept of recording while driving.. is it standard practice over there?

They have dashcams due to the insane amount of accidents that happen purposely to fraud the insurance companies. People try to throw themselves infront of cars, as well as having no real standard for how the cars physical shape should be. All this has resulted in people getting in accidents constantly, and then, before the dashcam, having to pay a lot of money due to insurance not covering.
Now though, since most have a dashcam, they can prove to the insurance companies that the accident was not their fault.

LOL the videos explain it. They need it. Maybe its mandated like in South Korea. They need to start building dash cams into all vehicles. Helps with insurance.

nice to quote what you wanted... you also forgot Mexico as part of North America. I was speaking more to the ability to create these montages due to the dash cam... do you believe there are that many people in North America with dashcams AND catching accidents like this on video? :rolleyes:

Car insurance is a fairly recent development in Russia. The combination of environment + new laws as Shakey already mentioned generate some fun content.

Poor driving standards and a lot of people throw themselves over your bonnet in town centres trying to earn a bit of money.

I don't have one because, I think, it's bad karma :D None of my friends or family members have one either.

But, some people buy them for one of the two reasons:

1) To prove their innocence and avoid liability if an accident happens;
2) To record an accident or something funny and post it on social networks to get a tonne of likes!

Contrary to popular belief, dash cams are not that expensive and the Chinese-made models (those with the green font) are downright cheap costing $25.

I should also mention that lot's of videos shot in the countries like Ukraine, Poland, or Moldova are uploaded on YouTube and packaged as videos from Russia.

Maybe these people should spend a little less time buying cameras and a little more time bolting their wheels on properly :shiftyninja:
