YouTube is bursting with unbelievable auto clips, particularly a surge of Russian car crashes and popular scams. The reason why there are more of these types of videos hailing from Russia is quite simple: It has become common for drivers to keep dash cams in their vehicles due to corrupt traffic police and a plethora of scammers looking for a quick buck! The chances of being targeted for fraud increase when driving an exotic car like a Maserati or even a Mercedes.
It can be dangerous to drive and even to pull over after an accident in Russia. Drivers must contend with others attacking them and corrupt officials on a regular basis. The solution has become dash cams!
The streets of Russia can be dangerous, and the traffic enforcement officials can be worse! Drivers regularly use dash cams to avoid having to pay bribes to officers and scammers. A popular plot involves pedestrians pretending to be hit by a car. A simple dash cam can save the driver from paying the pedestrian a large sum of money!
It is not uncommon for Russian traffic police to side with the party willing to pay. It is likely common for pedestrians and police to pair up in these types of scams. Therefore, the cost of installing video on all sides of a vehicle in order to drive in Russia is actually worth the initial investment!
