    I have just been watching the Russian fail compilation 2015 on Youtube and realise I am different, in so many ways.

    Their driver skill are something else, no wonder they have the greatest uptake of dashcams in the world. All manner of episode from crashes to punchups to machine guns and meteorites. I WILL NOT be visiting there even though it would be interesting it looks too dangerous on those roads.

    Russian cars appear to be fitted with on/off accelerators to be operated regardless of weather/road conditions/traffic density.

    The subsequent road rage is very rarely limited to a war of words.

    Dash cam essential, loaded revolver recommended :wasntme:

    Its not just russians most of eastern europe there hgv drivers cannot drive and certainly cannot reverse. They must get their licence in a packet of cigarettes.

    When Russian drivers have a collision, they seem to have to continue until they hit at least four other cars, or pedestrians, or have crossed a field and ended up side down. And the amount of wheels that just come off vehicles is astounding!

    My maternal grandmother was Russian, my brother and his wife called her The Wicked Witch of the North. I think that was an understatement.

    OK once you have watched the mad bad drivers, road rage and guns, its time to warm up the slippers light up a fat one and watch the stop a douchebag channel! Stop a douchebag is a Russian youth movement who try to stop drivers driving on pavements etc.

    We too could do with some douchebag people in this country at times but having watched the general standard of driving in Russia, they are desperate for them.
    If you look on Youtube for 'Russian fail compilation 2015' you may consider that driving is not their only problem
