Not sure on originally, but there are some there for sure. We have had a few members on here form Russia actually. That, and as the link that radiod posted points out, Vladistok (I believe that was the city name?) is a lot like San Francisco, terrain wise, and there are a LOT of kids with easy access (being in eastern Russia) to high power, rwd Japanese cars. Hilarity ensues.will someone please tell me that no supras were EVER delivered to russia..
I'll admit, I tend to drive a bit fast if listening to certain types of music. Bullet For My Valentine, Initial D's soundtracks, Meatloaf, etc...Its the music, they all think they're in a video game.
I would be surprised if it was all that expensive. From what I can tell, they don't often have to pay the driver anything...I wonder how much auto insurance costs the average driver over there...
Don't wander in here very often but I actually don't know. I have driven several places in Russia as well as all over Ukraine though. The only place I found truly nuts was Moscow. And I don't mind a little corruption from the cops as it has gotten me out of a few situations I'd have gone to jail for in the US. On the other hand I likely wouldn't have been doing those things back home and Russian cops tend to go easier on foreigners than they do the locals.Maybe JetJock knows?
So instead of braking for the car in front it's more honorable to swerve into oncoming traffic or bike/pedestrian sidewalks and kill innocent people? Lol, that's some impressive logic.Some of those accidents happened in asian countries, you can see some roadsigns that aren't cyrillic. Im guessing that in alot of countries its a loss of face (literally) if you use the brakes from following too close. The cows are the highlight in the vid.

Welcome to the future of the good ol' USA...I read the article explaining the dash cam's necessity earlier in this thread. That's crazy their roads are that unsafe and that their government/police/citizens are THAT corrupt. Sad example of human civilization.
Even though I am not old enough to remember such a time, I miss the days when driving a vehicle was a pain in the ass. Convenience ruins a LOT of good things...Yeah driving in the middle east will make you hypertensive. lot of drivers here don't brake till you can't see their grill and as a revenge tactic swerve around, get in front of you and slow way down to teach you a lesson.
