I don't know why YouTube came up with that recommendation but it's... it's... it's... ...bizarre...  :o   :scared:

Yes, that's a very popular movement in Russia, since there are a lot of douchebags on the roads. Situation is also kind of degrading real fast.

One question remains: what is on the sticker?

"I don't care about anyone [literal "I spit on everyone"], I drive anywhere I want". And around the circle "Federal project to stop douchebagery on the roads".

It is obviously not an official federal project.

This should also happen in China. Fxxking drivers do not know to give right of way to pedestrians, and do not know to signal before shifting lanes or turning.

I'm surprised it's still going on actually.

Appearantly it is necessary. Smart they pour soapwater over the sticker making it too slippery to remove. And about that brand new car... that is BS. A new car doesn't have a slipping auxilary belt (the squeeking noise).
There are small lies, big lies and then there is what is on the screen of your oscilloscope.

Interesting way to enforce the laws.

Entertaining. Douche bag drivers really need to be taught a lesson... although sticking a difficult to remove label in order to obstruct the driver's vision is probably taking it a step too far. In Australia that could be considered malicious damage.

I hate this sense of entitlement people have when they get behind the wheel of a car. I put it down to two things: selfishness and laziness.

In Russia too. But guess what, if police cared, they would have taken care of douchebags in a first place :)

I was thinking the same thing.  This is what happens when the police do not do their job.

I often watch fail/crash videos, and it's impressive how an incredible number (the vast majority) of car crash videos comes from Russia, dozens every week, most of the time awfully stupid...

car crash videos comes from Russia
That's a bias. In Russia almost everyone has a dash cam, so you obviously will see more stuff on video.

And the reason everyone has a dash cam is that there are a lot of insurance scams.

All those cool crash videos is just a side effect.

The reason you see so many videos from Russia is because everyone seems to have dashcams there. Accidents happen everywhere, they just don't get recorded that often.

Edit: ataradov beat me to it.

Yeah well it's a chicken and egg situation - sure we see lots of video because there are lots of dashcams, but the reason so many people have dashcams is precisely because of the high number of scam attempts and morons causing stupid accidents and people want to prove it's not their fault...

Well, I've watched a few and I'm really impressed at how civilized most of them act, even in such a situation. Try this in a German city and put some stickers on cars I'm sure there will be quite a few lost teeth...  :-+

I have met alot of people and generally what I hear is that Americans can be some of the most polite people in the world. No, I am not saying that any other country lacks polite people or we arnt rude, just thats the thing that strikes people that I have heard more than once. There is also the fact that the US(and I suppose a few other countries are similiar) has some of the most structured traffic in the world.
Yes, I have seen plenty of those dash cam videos. The one I remember in particular was a car being driven by an old lady with her husband in it which stopped suddenly in front of another car. When the guy in the other car breaked quick enough to avoid hitting them, she threw it in reverse to hit him anyway. He then got out and started gesturing towards his dash cam while talking with them.
The other one I remember is some guy that was walking along(or on a bike I think?). And he tried getting hit by a guy in a car on purpose. The dude in the car jumped out and beat the crap out of him. haha Just in time for the cops to pull up. Nope, they didnt bother going after the guy in the car who was now driving away.

They only need to put the sticer on the president. He decides to re-instate the Soviet union again, and invade east europe again.

Decent odds on that someone from that channel will get killed or seriously hurt.
IIRC one video showed a guy they approached pull an AK47 from his car.

Nicest drivers I've seen were in Canada where they have their weird 4 way stop sign intersections. Multiple times someone else was their first but waited to let me through first, it's completely weird, you were their first, you get the right of way!

... since there are a lot of douchebags on the roads. ...
I have always wondered why there are so many douchebags on Russian roads
Can you explain this?
There are 3 kinds of people in this world, those who can count and those who can not.
