The video is sad, but at least 'pizdec' is funny.

Sad video. I remember a video that someone posted on the Wegenforum with pictures of fatal accidents. The fact that I remember it well says enough

Tunnels leaking water is a problem all across the world. But in Moscow it's bigger because of the lower temperatures I guess..

According to some of the comments, the person who was hit actually survived.

The pedestrian survived, and that's one awful edition of that video.

Russia...wow

Russia...rotten politicians...rotten drivers...rotten road planning...wow...seems like a nice country to live.

I can see lots of criminal behaviours here. Of course always with innocent people killed or injured.

By the way, it was a foolish action by the police-officer. There was no need to wipe the right lane free from traffic at all, and if that had to be done, a red cross could be shown on the signalling system.

However you never wish someone a faith like this...

Well, I'm completely bored during my lunch break at university, so I will try This is more like a summary, not a word-by-word translation. I also did not include the names of the places, since I am not familiar with them.

"The yellow light appears, but whoever rushes, won't cross the intersection in time. The police video camera shows that the law was broken by both drivers: the first driver started driving on yellow, and the second tried to run the intersection on red. The meeting happened exactly in the middle."

"On this square, the same picture. The truck stops on yellow, but the other car decides to pass it, and 'meeting' the other car is inevitable. Both cars say goodbye to their bumpers. The driver who had the green was so surprised that he forgot to even use the brake, rolling beyond the camera's field of view."

"On this square, drivers like to drive perpendicularly to the road, and on red lights. It seems that the Russian car was being chased by an import, whose trajectory was corrected by an unsuspecting driver making a legal left turn."

"The same bridge over the river, but now an acrobatic episode. The driver decided to make a left turn without reducing speed, ending up on the roof."

"It turns out that it is dangerous to cross the ring road even on a green light during the day. It is possible to end up on the right side."

"On the same ring road, it is also possible to get a frontal hit by the rear end of another car. The imported car having lost control caused havoc on all lanes of the drivable surface."

"Motorway, night, the speed is 100 km/h and higher. But for someone even that is not enough, so passing is done even on the dividing line. The maneuver didn't work out - the driver chipped the car in the opposing left-most lane, causing a chain reaction. Almost no one could brake in time."

"And this is another road; two cars are stationary with their emergency lights on. The driver of one of them is trying to find the cause of the unexpected stop under the hood. But suddenly, a 'checkers-style' driver who makes a sharp lane change is not able to control the vehicle. The stopped car turns over and covers its owner. Only because of a miracle he is able to survive and even independently crawl from under the car, at which moment help arrived."

Thanks for the translate @TheCat
The most accidents made because they (drivers) pass with a red light
