    Man, that's like the wild wild west. Their main issues seem to be:

    - Wheels and tires coming off

    - People driving the wrong way on streets

    - People driving drunk as skunks

    - People driving 50mph faster than surrounding traffic

    - Falling trees

    - Animals in the road


    Otherwise, it's no different from driving in New York City.
    If someone blows up a school with a bomb they go after the bomber ... if someone shoots up a school they go after the gun.

    A privilege is just a right that has been taken away by government.

    Political correctness is cowardice wrapped in a lie.

    Scary! Noticed one guy wrecked in an intersection, got out, retrieved his ditty bag and started walking away as if nothing had happened.
    I was sent to the hospital for observation. I didn't observe anything so I left.

    My guess is a stolen car.

    Is it a matter of everyone being drunk over there, or what? It looks like a total free for all, circus atmosphere on their roads, and like everyone is resigned to the fact their cars are going to be trashed.

    Another good reason not to visit Russia!

    Well alot of drivers are drunk, but also keep in mind while there are some very good drivers there are also some very bad drivers because driving culture was never ingrained and wide spread mass driving as a phenomenon is not nearly as old as here.

    So it's kind of like the skies would be if everyone here suddenly got Piper Cubs?

    What amazes me as much as anything is how these people not only survive, but get out of these wrecked cars and walk away.
