Thank you, Jesda, brought back many memories of driving in Japan in the late sixties, early seventies ..... especially the military vehicles mixed in with the civilian traffic. However, the traffic was much lighter in Japan in those days.

At least in Russia their horses know enough to use a crosswalk!

If that's a typical day, I'd hate to see a bad day.

Well, at least they do their part in population control.

It's gotten almost as bad on Route 7 in Fairfax, Virginia with all the young "preevil-eged, my moomie and my teachers told me so" BMW drivers using the right turn and emergeny lanes as their own private passing lanes. That's when they are not rear ending the car in front of them causing a five or six car rear ender!

It's a freaking free for all.

Just watched the entire video.

Russian roads, to me, seem like the real world equivalent of Need For Speed. No regard for speed limits, changing conditions, pedestrians, other vehicles, the police, common sense, the obvious, the dangerous, etc.

Shoot, all you need is the ability to auto-fix your car by driving by a repair shop, and you're set!

So much lulz.

I loved the guy who gets out of his hoopty, grabs his shoulder bag and limps away...

Normal driving day in downtown Naples (Italy)

Wonder why they (Russians) all seem to use video cameras 24/7 ?

That's one of the best parts.
I also love the one where the song on the radio is saying "Nothing can stop me now" Right before he slams into the rear end of another car :histeric:

It's also interesting the number of people that either keep driving after a collision, or just get out and abandon the car.

In Soviet Russia, "Vodka drives you!!!"

Personally I like the Russian bus driver acting like a BOSS!!

That was definitely some Boss driving! I suppose you have to learn how to there.
