Russian Death Tunnel

This is a video of what happened in the tunnel in Moscow city when it got covered with ice. It’s not new – it was pretty popular a while ago, but maybe somebody didn’t see it yet, it’s a very Russian thing.

  1. Ice… that explains a bit… but strangely other cars seems to brake without ice related problems…?

    The bus passengers has had a trip of their life… :O

  2. The explanation with ice is almost like this site…
    I think anybody who has even a small expirience in car driving can easily find the answer for all these accidents.

    Please start the discussion that Russians drink vodka as water. It’s so funny 🙂

    I am Russian, but now I am living outside Russia. And I count my words: Russian drivers not as bad as drivers from many other countries.

  3. Oh. THere was no ice in the tunnel. It’s just the longest tunnel in moscow, it’s called “lefortovsky”. This is not a record of 1 day. It’s just compilation of crashes (during a long time).

  4. Several of those cars were trying to pass when they crashed. In America it there is a serious penalty to be paid if you attempt to overtake (pass) another vehicle while driving through a tunnel. When traveling through tunnels no one ever tries to pass and speeds are restricted to a modest second or thrid gear speed.

  5. To paraphrase Homer Simpson : “The best part was when the cars crashed!”

    I tend to ignore admin when he states “it’s a very Russian thing”– Russian language is a very Russian thing, tea from a samovar is a very Russian thing, balalaika is a very Russian thing– car crashes are a universal thing. That said, I do get enjoyment out of the posts here most of the time, whether they are “Russian” or not.

  6. bigdog lets suppose its raining or snow is melting due to salt in the street before the entry of the tunnel. the tires of the cars absorbs the water and wet the road in the tunnel. when the temperature fall the wet road in the tunnel ices pretty quickly…

    thanks dafdd for the song

    You’ve never been to Boston, have you?

  8. It not the ice, there is not present an ice.
    They are drivers, Berserkers from the Hell.
    In this tunnel it is impossible to exceed speed, differently accident with loss of management of the car.

  9. When the admin says “it’s a very Russian thing”, I understand it is not about the accidents. He is talkking about the fact of HIDING INFORMATION is a very Russian thing. I understood this.
