If you've ever wondered why so many Russians have dash cams, this is why. This is why right here, ladies and gentlemen.
Behold! A three-minute supercut of some of the dumbest pedestrians in all of Russia, and from the looks of it, a few other countries too. You need a license to drive a car, but these people will make you think we should require licenses for people who walk around cars as well. (I'd like to formally apologize for the dubstep/nu-metal soundtrack, but the video itself is pretty shocking.)
So many of these "accidents" seem to have been done on purpose — like the guy who lays down in the middle of the street and gets run over around the 1:30 mark — that they are likely attempts at insurance fraud. The video's title, which translates into "for the money under the wheels," indicates that's the case as well. Fraud is rampant in Russia, which is one of the many reasons so many drivers carry dash cams.
But I think at least a few can also be chalked up to carelessness and idiocy, though. Also intoxication. I hear they do that in Russia too.
