At least 90%.
The majority of riders over there are lower class youth who can't afford a car. It explains a lot about their riding style.

This and other youtube videos make Russian roads look like the wild west. Also, for someone who understands Russian, the comments of the drivers and passengers are really amusing.

^ absolutely what I was thinking - non-riders seeing this sort of carnage must think "Those things are death-machines !" when the majority of the incidents (not accidents) that I saw ( gave up after 10 minutes of idiocy) were plainly unskilled riders under the influence of booze.

This is a new Internet and media phenomena. Fairly rare events get caught on video, photographed or reported and it creates an impression that these events are far more common than they really are. Having said this, the driving culture in Russia is bad. Not the worst in the world, but I'd rather ride through Manhattan.

I've come to the conclusion that we should ban dash cams. They obviously cause accidents!

3 Golden Rules for motorcyclists:

Rule 1: Don't ride like an asshole.
Rule 2: Don't ride in shitty countries.
Rule 3: Don't ride like an asshole in shitty countries.

As far as this vid is concerned that should about cover it.

What I saw was poor skills & lack of judgement from both riders and drivers.

Quite a few hit & run incidents in there as well.

Great "How-not-to" vid.


I also wonder the age of some of these riders, they ride as if it's a video game with a reset button.

Damn - that's painful to watch. There is a whole lot of stupid in those videos, both riders and drivers. I bet 90+ percent of the crashes could have been avoided with a little skill and judgement.
