It's just a fact of life over there, ironically speaking.
We’re all familiar with the dangers, perils, and outright hilariously pathetic ways of Russian drivers. What they get away with over there, or at least attempt to, are things that just don’t happen in most other civilized countries. Could you really imagine a case of road rage in America being settled with crowbars, hatchets, and various other metal objects? No, Americans prefer to yell and scream; Russians like to physically attack.
And even when there’s absolutely nothing going on, travelling on Russian roads and highways in the middle of the night can be a fatal undertaking. One such example is this guy out for an evening cruise. His dash cam footage explains it all, and he’s damn lucky to be alive.
