Russian Dashcam Video Hijinks

As you may have seen from the remarkable meteorite videos last year, many (most?) Russian car owners have video cameras running in their cars all the time. This is mostly because it helps establish blame in traffic accidents (specifically regarding insurance claims), and for other reasons such as possible police problems during traffic stops, etc. In any case, the ubiquity of "always on" cameras provides us with a rather mesmerizing stream of videos showing people driving w-a-a-y too fast and/or not paying attention, wheels flying off trucks and tractors, horses using human traffic crossings, pirouetting trucks, moose on the loose, and just general mayhem. If you stop to think about it, dash cam videos in the US would likely be just as bad, but it's the Russian ones we have for now so take a look...
