Russia is a mysterious and confusing place to most of us.
It’s a vast, icy tundra where they drink vodka like water and the president has a black belt in judo.
It’s also an incredibly violent place. At least the new Russian dash-cam craze seems to suggest so. It shows that Russians have a huge problem with road rage.
According to an article by Russian expat Marina Galperina at animalnewyork.com, dashboard cameras have become normal in Russian cars to legally document traffic accidents and scam attempts, but it also provides for entertainment when people upload the most crazy videos online featuring violence, death, and mayhem on Russian roads.
Like Mexicans, Russians manage to turn their carnage into entertainment for themselves.
While car crashes can be entertaining (as well as educational—I always drive like a grandmother after I’ve watched a horrific car crash online), I find the clips of rage and violence the most entertaining, so I’ll leave out fatal stuff for now.
Here’s some Russian madness for your viewing pleasure, including a robbery, a scam attempt, shooting, and shitload of fists flying.
Budem zdorovy, kids!
