If the endless supply of crazy Russian dash cam videos haven’t convinced you to get one for your car, maybe Garmin’s new Dash Cam 35 will. In addition to documenting accidents, it now has Forward Collision Warnings to remind drivers when they’re following too close to another vehicle, risking a crash.
In 2012, dash cams introduced themselves to the world. In 2013, dash cams started breaking worldwide news. In 2014? Things got weird.
Last night, yet another eye-searing blue meteor screamed across the dark Russian sky. Lucky for us, Russia is the land of dashcams, meaning that yet again, we get a driver's seat view of the phenomenon. How do you say "wow" in Russian?
This year the dash cam reached maturity, going from capturing weedy little videos of Russian car crashes to recording global news events. And these are the very craziest dash cam vids of 2013 from the whole world over.
Traffic accidents are annoying enough on their own, but they're even worse when they're caused by a complete idiot. This Russian man takes a little initiative by dispensing some righteous road justice. Not to the driver that (almost) caused the mess, but to the driver's cellphone.
