    Extremely Close Calls Caught On Russian Dash Cam Compilation

    Words fail me. Watch this (I dare you) and try to stay seated.

    Driver helped out of crushed car (1024 x 712 pixel image)

    This driver swerves around the right side of the car with the dash-cam and begins to overtake next vehicle to the left when he is hit head-on by vehicle coming from other direction. Woman starts to help him out through reduced windscreen openning.

    ABOVE - Parent and child at open R/H car door nearly wiped-out by white car going past on the verge at high speed.

    Plenty of pedestrians wander across road without observing any caution. Several overtaking manoevours gettingout of shape due to excessive speed on icy roads. Vehicles colliding at intersections where no one is giving way. Motorcycles crash into cars, and cars crash into motor scooters. Guy in petrol station nearly crushed by out-of-control vehicle going into fuel bowser.

    Pick YOUR favorite!

    Loved that lady (semi swerved around her -- tractor-trailer to the Yanks) and how she stands stunned for a bit, then turns about and walks back to where she started.

    No cell-phone, but she may have consumed a fair bit of Vodka prior to that.

    . . . . . . .

    Is it all just slippery roads & vodka?

    Actually, before discovering the Russian vids, I was trying to find the following vid once again-

    Enjoy!

    Scooter rider hits and runs



    Look for the nonchalant manner as he rides out into the outer lane, without looking, to be hit a glancing impact by an auto that he blunders in front, or against, as its passing.
