You're basically asking to wreck.
We’ve seen before how dangerous it can be to overtake on Russian roads. This latest video only drives that point home further. It stars an SUV driver hell-bent on cutting a line of slow traffic. Okay, that’s fair enough and definitely not outrageous behavior for a motorist in any part of the world. But of course this is Russia, and what the driver doesn’t realize is that one of the slow cars being overtaken is making a left turn or a u-turn. The poor driver even slows down and puts the turn signal on!
Unfortunately safety and cautiousness only go so far in Russia.
