1. Whoa, that's a bit too realistic for me.

OTOH, I think film like this should be shown to adolescents and new drivers.

3. Apparently those are police dash cams, and they got wrecked half of the time

yes, should be shown to new drivers and recovering DUI drivers. I seriously think that half of those accidents were from drunk driving.

2. Was in a cab in downtown Moscow

and the streets were packed and fast. At one point the driver just went up on the sidewalk for a while to get around. He went up on the sidewalk, not slowly out of respect for the pedestrians, he went up on the sidewalk fast and I thought I was going to lose either my life or preferably my lunch. All was well but I was a lot more careful when walking down the street after that. Apparently that was not all that unusual.

5. Actually more and more Russian drivers are putting in these cameras.

In there regular cars.

Insurance and lawsuits is a nightmare, with traffic cops so corrupt they stink on ice.

So the cameras are for insurance purposes to prove who is at fault and who is not.

Lol....

Not sure if you've been driving on the American roadway lately.

Maybe not quite as bad as the video, but getting there.

9. They left off the good part

The one with the yellow tractor and the parked cars, the car owners eventually come outside, drag the guy out of the cab and beat the crap out of him.

10. OOofda! When and if I travel to Russia (which I'd love to do)

I'll take the train. And walk on the extreme inside of the sidewalks.

13. A young woman just moved in below us, from Russia.

She'll never be borrowing either of our cars.
