Russian Dashcam Cow Truck

The reason why the world got such great footage of the large meteor gracefully arcing across the sky before violently smashing to earth and causing mayhem was in part due to the fact that driving on Russian roads is completely mental.

Many of the videos of the meteor’s path across the sky were taken from cameras mounted on the dashboards of Russian drivers’ cars. The ‘dashcams’ record a multitude of near misses on the country’s roads where bad surfaces, extreme weather, drink driving and plain crazy drivers generate a high accident rate and Russian motorists gather the footage in case they need it to support insurance claims.

There are a lot of car crash compilations taken from Russian dashcams out there, but if you only see one Russian dashcam incident, it should be this one.
