I've been to Switzerland 4 times since the late 80's and it is unbeatable for sheer, breathtaking beauty. And great people too, I should add.
Thanks for the great videos AlpineGuerilla!

I should have counted but I think the scooter riders took them selves out more than the cars did?

That's about 6 minutes of stupid right there...

Not to be stereotyping, but weren't most of those Darwin award candidates Asian?

I think you are... After all, it is a collection of videos from Asia, no? Thailand, maybe?

What I find fascinating is that so many people there seem to have cameras on board of their cars. Weird or what?

And on a more sober note: even though most of these crashes are self-inflicted, there are quite a few shown that were caused by car drivers not noticing the scooters. A brutal reminder for us!

I think that video might be a good training tool to get people into the 2% state of mind. Sure there were car drivers who didn't notice the scooters, but didn't YOU figure out in the first week that YOU were riding on the street that YOU should assume that YOU are invisible to most people driving cars and that the ones who can see YOU are trying to run YOU over?

Agreed with the others, alot of this is the scooter's fault. Some of these people have got auto-darwinism written all over them.
