Looking at his reaction, survival was probably the least concern.

Its called shock, I'd like to see a video of this guy 30 minutes later.

some stuff I noticed

1) Red light running
2) lack of traffic lights at wide boulevards
3) high-speed head-on collisions
4) generally stupid behaviour
5) lack of divided roads

I wonder if the Russian government knows about the problems of Russian drivers. Probably not.

I see that it takes some effort to survive a drive in Russia, sometimes they really seem to cause an accident on purpose

Nah, Moscow is a city with almost as much inhabitants as the entire Netherlands. More people concentrated in one area = also more accidents concentrated in one area.

No doubt that Moscow /Russia is less safe than the Netherlands though, but we are übersafe.

I noticed that most of the accidents in the first russian video cause by wet road with the extremely fast speed limit of those cars

I know, but that's why I added the smiley

Most of those accidents seem to happen at the same junctions anyway, it's not like the whole city is completely unsafe.

Wow those roads in Moscow are very wide, maybe they should be expressways with barriers between which they do not seem to have. I also agree they do not seem to like red lights too much.

Also nioticed from both videos that many drivers in Moscow streets, the drive uncarefully with maximum speeds, that's why they are so many accidents
