    It reminds me of all the "Meanwhile In Russia" videos on YouTube, lots of wheels falling off. Of course after driving in a city there I understand the dangers of "Russian Roads". I'll stick with driving in the country and take taxi inside cities.

    I wonder if the abundance of those crazy Russian driving vids has something to do with greater use of dashcams in Russia.

    Similar to the Florida Man memes, which are theorized to be so abundant because looser freedom of information laws in Florida make it easier for journalists to publicize arrest information.

    I'm sure it does, I posted ONE dashcam video with no accidents, bears, or anything and lot of people said they liked it. Guess people like them and of course if you DO happen to see a bear driving a motorcycle, all the better.

    It starts off slow at a traffic light but then is a drive through town.

    Wow. Those are some narrow, busy, streets. And that canal, off the side of the street you started on, would need be avoided – at all cost. Way too easy to give your car a ditch. Reminiscent of a very old culture, in an equally old city. Thanks for sharing.

    Simply don't drive into the ditch. The road right at the end is narrow, the rest seem fine to me.

    Talk about your freak accidents. It's a thousand wonders that wheel and tire assembly didn't kill him, given the mass, speed, and the angle he was hit from. Could've easily broken his neck, or given him a concussion – and that's before his head got slammed into the concrete.
