My first thought was why do so many people in Russia have dashboard cameras? The video answers that question quite comprehensively.

And you think Middle East driving was bad! In the M.E it's just the lack of training, standards, respect, stupidity, punishment and enforcement. Add vodka to that mix and you get those video's. I could not believe the stupidity of some of them. No wonder they all got a dash cam!

They have inboard cameras for insurance purposes, to prove they are not responsible for accidents

Exclamation

My first trips to Cairo around '98/99 were eye openers. On return to Bahrain, driving over from Muharraq, recall muttering to myself, "Good to be back in civilization".
