If I remember correctly, there is a thread on here
about how the people of Moscow were disarmed and they
were warning us not to let it happen to us as well.
So he wont get shot....but I bet one day he could be sandwiched
between two vehicles and crunched at both ends...maybe a side .....

Just spend a week driving up and down the M6 in England (main motorway from north to south), there's atleast 2 accidents a day and most are caused by forign lorry drivers, driving similar to this idiot and just pulling out into traffic with the attitide that I'm bigger so you better get out the way!!

I always thought driving was the same as walking. Someone bigger than you will bump you and cause you to fall


It's kind of the same concept.

I am glad you posted that Kuro,

My driving is mainly throughout the whole of France and Eastern Europe and yes, the worst drivers are the foreign lorry drivers (especially Spanish and Polish), i have seen quite a few accidents caused by lorry and bus drivers cutting people off on the motorway or pulling out to overtake without warning.

So would you nut someone that walked in front of you because he was avoiding a lump of dog crap on the pavement?

That is why he has the webcam.

Having watched the video, there is no evidence of that at all.

There is no excuse for bad driving and the drivers who cut the bus up were driving badly.

Looking at the film it seems that the majority of people realised that they were in the wrong lane and needed to get into the right hand side lane before missing the turning.

However, yes, i totally agree with you that there is no evidence in the videos... but... you will hate me for this, what if the drivers behind the car that cut the bus driver off suddenly braked to avoid collision (you can clearly observe the first car swerving to the left again when it is hit by the bus and the van being pushed aside.) and this is the reason why you do not see other cars going past on the left lane...

Just putting what ifs out...

To all of those saying "Oh Mr. BusDriver could have avoided all these accidents by slowing down and letting these people cut in.", I have to counter with the fact that all the people who cut him off are actually the ones who could have avoided all of these accidents by not driving like self-entitled children.

Indeed. The bus driver was teaching the bullies a lesson.

In Russia they say he was teaching the 'teachers' (the 'teachers' being people in Russia who aggressively assert their dominance over other road users).

The car drivers got what they deserved.

I don't bump people. I'm saying that walking is sorta the same as driving. Like when people driving in a hurry is like people walking in a hurry. They are bumping others to get to their destination.

Buses and larger vehicles take longer to slow down. Darting in front of a bus and jumping on your brakes as it is trying to slow down for a junction is not the wisest move if one wishes to avoid being tail ended.

The video did show smaller vehicles darting in front of the bus and jumping on their brakes. They were tail ended.

I imagine they will think twice before doing that again.

My 2 cents, good on him. If the other drivers can't show a little consideration and self preservation instincts, then I say they got what they deserved. Remember folks; rudeness and even traffic laws are trumped by the laws of physics. If you cut off a bigger car, don't be surprised when you get yourself hit.

BTW, I saw this interesting article on why everyone in Russia drives around with those dash cams.


Why Do So Many Russian Drivers Have Dashboard Cams?


An estimated one million Russian motorists have installed dash cams in their cars. Though some of them captured the 10-ton meteor that exploded in atmosphere last week, the cameras are popular for just one reason: ensuring justice when it comes to proving accidents on the roads.

Last year, Al Jazeera spoke with motorists who never drive without their cameras. One driver said others believe that police officers are only on the roads to take bribes, bending traffic laws—or ignoring them completely—to benefit themselves. A camera will save you from false accusations.

“In Russia, everyone should have a camera on their dashboard. It’s better than keeping a lead pipe under your seat for protection,” writes Marina Galperina, a New York-based blogger who hails from Russia.

According to Galperina, hit and runs are “very common,” and insurance companies have begun to crack down on claims, often denying any claim with little evidence. Witnesses aren’t much help, either; Russian courts have turned into a he-said-she-said mess when it comes to traffic accidents. “Dash-cam footage is the only real way to substantiate your claims in the court of law,” Galperina writes.

No. But I would quite possibly fall over him. Hopefully not into the dog crap though.

That is a sure way to get shot eventually. How many times have you seen videos of a Russian driver emerging toting a gun in total road rage?......Yeah, this bus driver will be shot one day.....

Looks like he deliberately goes slow so he has an excuse for ramming them when they overtake. It's only a matter of time before he bumps the wrong guy and gets beaten into a hospital bed...

But you can't go through life in fear. Besides, he has shunted over 100 vehicles and no one has shot him yet.

It could be observed that motorcyclists don't as a habit go around looking for car drivers to punch for no reason.

Did the car driver almost run the biker over by any chance?
