Mean Streets

Think Canadian streets are dangerous? Take a look at this video.

According the BBC, an average of 35,000 Russians die in traffic accidents each year. In this clip, an angry motorist is caught shooting at pedestrians he felt were walking too slowly.

It's hard to imagine Canadian streets becoming this dangerous, but then again, I'm sure most Russians never dreamed they would get this bad either.

I guess the question would be has it ever been better. I'm sure that there are areas in Russia where this is commonplace and will slowly disappear as their society recovers from the scars of history.
