One is never sure whether to call this the "the best of the worst of," or vice versa: someone has strung together nearly three minutes of impacts culled from Russian dash cams – and those impacts cover everything from car-on-car to truck-on-car to fist-on-face. This is, after all, a land where an innocent Land Rover Freelander 2 can suddenly do a somersault in the middle of the street. And the image above, for instance, is the moment just before a fast-moving truck that tipped over in an oncoming lane slides into another Russian driver just going on about his business.
Although the subtitle of the video is "Dash-cams: Russia's Last Hope For Civility And Survival On The Road,"we doubt you will find any hope or civility, and a questionable idea of survival. Scroll down to watch it all unfold.
