When the asteroid blew over Russia one thing I wondered was why so many dash cams caught the thing happening i.e. why did so many people there have dash cans. This shows why. People do it because of the drunks and massive insurance fraud.
I both laughed and gasped at the guy who got ran over by the car in the first video. Dumbass.
I spent two years in Moscow, and thank god never saw stuff like this-- I always took the metro and after living in Egypt, learned to be super careful crossing streets. I don't think I ever heard of any Americans I knew having issues with people jumping in front of cars, but then again, diplomatic immunity would have probably gotten them out of it anyway.
It's more the insurance fraud issue, as opposed to drunks (although, some of them in the first video really do seem drunk). It also doesn't help that the militia (police) won't believe you UNLESS you have physical proof, so people started getting dash cams.
This is horrible. Remind me never to drive in Russia. It's bad enough when you have to keep an eye out for people not paying attention. But having to stay on your toes over people trying to screw you over by diving under your car.... WTF!?!
Edit: Here's a fitting cross-over from the funny pics thread:
