Having faith in a higher power may help you to avoid being taken out by a Russian motorist.
Waiting patiently by the side of the road for the cars to stop in Russia will get you nowhere. Instead one requires mental strength and a brave spirit in tackling the morning rush hour traffic.
You may also want to follow this pedestrian's suit by crossing yourself before crossing the street, whether the father, the son, and the holy spirit rocks your boat or not. It can't hurt and if you do end up caught beneath an oncoming motorist, your respect to a higher being may just save you from eternal damnation.
