Due to corrupt traffic police and a high percentage of accidents per capita, dash-cams have become nearly standard amongst Russian vehicles. These little cameras have been responsible capturing some of the most ridiculous traffic incidents you can find on the Internet. A search for “Russian dash-cam videos” in YouTube delivers thousands of gnarly dash-cam compilations, exposing first hand experiences of close calls and wild traffic incidents.

We sifted through some of the most extreme videos to bring you our top 15.

A parked car doesn’t usually see much action. That was not the case with this one! In a rare twist of events, this Russian dash-cam captured a flaming meteor flying through the night sky!

3) Sorry Cows!

In this insane Russian dash-cam video, a roofless tractor-trailer transporting about 30 cows tips over, sending the poor cows scattered across the street! Fortunately, it looks like everyone survived.

4) Black Bear Get Off The Road!

This dash-cam footage shows a head on collision with a huge bear as it tries to cross a Russian highway. Bears clearly need to look both ways before crossing too.

Close calls make for great dash-cam videos because you can be sure everyone made it out alive! This compilation of close calls keeps you on the edge of your seat so you can take in all the ridiculous action and still have a clear conscience.

 10) Two Lane Highway Gets Turned Into a Makeshift Three Lane

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=At_PAhvQHLc

Drivers on this Russian highway don’t seem to mind the white lines separating the two way street. It seems like pretty much everyone is weaving in and out of traffic and making up their own rules as they go along.

11) The Closest Call

This near-collision will have you breathing a sigh of relief as the two vehicles narrowly escape what would have been a major wreckage. 

12) Car Flips on Tram Wire

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qWx7zdMLVgQ

You would never expect to see a car flip over going below 20 MPH, that’s exactly what happened to this Russian driver. The car drove onto a cable tram wire and did an oddly slow back flip which was captured on a fellow motorist’s dash-cam!

13) Casual Escape From Epic Crash

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=arRZoBZb-i0

This Russian truck driver narrowly escapes a fatal crash and then proceeds to casually get up and walk around. It’s extreme. It’s casual.

14) Extreme Drivers Cross Floating/Sinking Bridge in Russia

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ITlf6jYBEUk

The fact that this bridge is mostly underwater did not stop some extreme Russian drivers from continuing to cross it, even after a car gets stuck and is basically sinking in the middle. Only in Russia.

15) Lightening Strikes SUV

Perhaps the most insane on the list. Watch as this SUV gets struck by lightening. And the driver continues driving!
