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.
At least six people were killed and more than 30 others were injured today when a suicide bomber detonated an explosive device onboard a bus in the southern Russian city of Volgograd. What appears to be the blast was captured on a driver's dash cam video below.
If you've ever wondered why so many Russians have dash cams, this is why. This is why right here, ladies and gentlemen.
Here we see a BMW 7 series driver somehow crash right into a raised platform blocking cars from crossing a set railroad tracks when a train is passing. It's a head scratcher, this.
