This guy is great. He has shunted over 100 vehicles from behind that have cut him up.


Alexei Volkov, who works in Zelenograd, a city 23 miles north-west of Moscow, has become an internet celebrity after posting video footage of his smashes with rude and careless drivers. He is known as 'The Punisher' after the ruthless comic vigilante who dispenses brutal justice.

Amazingly, he has kept his job despite the number of smashes and his unapologetic attitude and his unorthodox approach attracts a lot of sympathy, reports Red Hot Russia.

He said: 'If there is no fault of mine, the management doesn’t care. The bus usually gets only minor damage. If the damage is more serious, they just wait for the insurance payments and then repair it.

'What could I do? Swerve to the left in the oncoming traffic or suddenly brake and maybe injure the passengers?

'In both cases my licence would be revoked and I’d have some serious problems. While the happy b****** would just leave the scene. I am not interested in such an outcome. The cops just grin.'

Daily Mail


I think it is hilarious the way he shunts people who swerve in front of him and then brake heavily. The van that cuts him up is the best one.

It is understandable that this guy must be pretty miffed with the lack of uncivil drivers that cut him up on the road, especially if he is doing this for a living.

I, however do not think this is hilarious, he could kill someone doing that or injure someone badly...

Imagine a small child in the back of one of those cars when he shunts into it.

But that's just my opinion

Kindest respects

I loved that. Good for him.
It must be so frustrating having people cut you up all the time

People can get killed.Maybe he shouldn't participate in traffic if he doesn't have the patience to deal with the driving culture in his country.He is not gonna change how people drive, but he can cause something irrevocable like the loss of a human life.

He barely bumps them.
It's not like he is smashing the crap out of them. No damage on those cars.

I wish I could do this in my truck sometimes.
But I would be fired.

Someone will shoot him, what an idiot. Most of the crashes he could have avoided.

I know he barely bumps them in the videos that have been posted so far, but just imagine one day if he sees the red mist and gets a bout of road rage!

Although the video below has nothing to do with this guy, just look what happens when the lorry/bus is going too fast :


I have personally been in 2 car accidents and i can tell you know that when you have a lorry smacking into the back of your car even at very slow speed, whip lash injuries can do a lot of damage to a child. (and no i didn't cut the lorry up, he was driving up my backside on an icy road)

Kindest respects

There is no need to bump them, if he were a decent person with a brain inbetween his ears he would slow when something pulls in front, he would have to slow anyway by the look of the situations.

He just carries on the speed he is going, with no respect for anyone else. He will do this to the wrong person and will end up shot in the face for his stupidity. If a car cuts you up...so what? Happens to me all the time, its just what happens on the roads..some people are in a hurry, others arent.

Surely the bus company he works for must wonder why all the busses he drives are smashed up at the front?

Hi Amber,

Erm, i do not think that i said that there was a need to bump them,

I totally disagree with that kind of behaviour, even if i would be tempted to do it myself in his situation.

I spend about 80% of my working time on the roads visiting clients so i can totally understand that he has had enough.

Kindest respects

Imagine a small child sitting unrestrained in his bus as he jumps on the brakes?

The drivers who cut him up could have easily avoided such a situation, but they choose instead to cause an accident unless the bus driver endangered his own passengers by swerving or jumping on the brakes.

Many Russians see him as a hero. The Russian police have no problem with what he is doing.

I think he is great.

Thats just pure arrogance!! I might agree that people these days have no care for other road users but this just makes things worse! What if everybody started driving like this?

Although i respect and understand your point of view :

Sadly this is a debate where no side has real reason...

Even at the speed that the bus driver is shunting those cars and taking into consideration that buses in Russia do not have seatbelts for the passengers, damage in one way or another will one day happen to a human.

I thank you for reminding to imagine the child unrestrained in the bus.

Kindest respects

None of the accidents/shunts in the video were unavoidable, each could have been avoided had he used his mirrors and common sense/experience of the roads.

He had ample time to slow down, there would be no need to brake heavily if he was paying attention to other road users. I drive in London a lot, im always being cut up, but ive never had an accident in London.

If you look, he actually speeds up when the cars pull in front of him...one of the cars breaks so yea, that one may have been unavoidable (old bus, crap brakes maybe?) but the others were done on purpose. The traffic slows in front of him, you see this by the brake lights...yet he speeds up to hit the cars pulling in front of him

Someone will get injured one day.

Of course, if he doesn't swerve his bus or jump on the brakes, it is much less likely that it is his passengers who are injured, rather than the passengers in the car that swerved in front of him and jumped on the brakes in the first place.

The insurance companies are happy with him, the police are happy with him and much more importantly, I imagine that his passengers are also happy with him.

The moral is, don't cut up buses. Everyone knows that.

What if 40ton lorry drivers took the view that "oh he cut me up, he deserves to be injured rather than me if it goes wrong...so il crush his car and not bother trying to avoid it"

Its stupid stupid stupid!!

Well, in that case, lets just see then!

I am not sure if you are married or have kids and i sincerely hope that one day this type of incident doesn't happen to you, but if it does, lets just see if you think it is still hilarious.

Just to add, of course the insurance companies are happy with him doing that, it gives them great advertising and as for the police, well nothing to say really, I have been to Russia quite a few times and can give you it straight from the horses mouth in a way :

Most of the Russian uniformed Police don't give a sh*t about anything unless they get cash in hand!

Kindest respects

If you have a kid in your back seat, and you're still driving like a moron/cutting off buses/trying for insurance fraud, then it's on you my friend.

Then the 40 ton lorry would shunt into the bus that had cut it up. The bus driver doesn't drive a 40 ton lorry though.

As far as I am aware, the bus driver has shunted about 100 vehicles. No one has been injured. No one has shot him. No one has been run over by 40 tone trucks.

Lots of people who cut him up have gone away with damaged vehicles though...

Oh, so now we are talking about Insurance fraud?

Who says that half the cars that cut in front of that bus driver had to because they had another vehicle speeding up behind them or were trying to avoid a collision from another car cutting them up too and they had no choice in order to avoid an accident?
