Driving in Russia - Winter DashCam 2013 (2)
In any accident the SmartCam is your best friend:
Icy roads can cause you to lose tire traction even more so than when
driving a car in the rain, making them one of the top causes of car
accidents. A number of drivers lose control of their cars and get into
accidents when the roads are icy. Technology can help, but it will not
solve all the problems of icy roads.
Please be careful on the roads! Never consume alcoholic beverages before
driving. This is the most frequent cause of serious accidents. If you
drink, use a non-drinking designated driver, a taxi, or sleep over.
Follow street signs and traffic lights, but use your judgment too. Don't
try to beat red lights. And expect others to try to do so, so give them
time to go through, particularly trucks that have trouble slowing down.
Always stay at a safe distance from other vehicles. A general rule is the
farther you are from them, the safer you are.
When you try to run a red light, there are many grave hazards. You take the
risk that someone will turn in front of you (thinking that you must be
stopping). Or, when the light changes, someone will pull out from the side
and into your path. Or, a pedestrian (perhaps a child) will step out into
the crosswalk on the far side. You are probably speeding and are committed
to running the light, so the accident will be a severe one. The resulting
carnage will be your fault, and you will have to live with it for the rest
of your life. Keep in mind here that, it is exceptionally difficult for the
other driver, when looking at your vehicle head on, whether your are about
to accelerate, stop, or even how fast you are going.
Trucks are a special hazard. Give them extra room. They cannot see other
vehicles as well as you can in a car. If there is an accident between a car
and a truck, the driver of the car will be the one most at risk.

Slideshow Part5 Kaufdorf car graveyard Spring 2010
Kaufdorf Autofriedhof - Switzerland's vintage car graveyard.
It was the biggest graveyard of its kind in Europe -- a vast metal jungle
of more than 1,000 rusting vintage cars including forgotten British
Wolseleys, "sit up and beg" Ford Prefects, rotting Porsches and even the
wreck of a Rolls Royce Silver Cloud.
The collection of decaying old-timers, which go back to the late-1920s,
sits in makeshift corrugated iron garages and among trees on the edge of
Kaufdorf some 10 miles south of Switzerland's capital Bern.
After surviving for 75 years, the authorities have declared that the
collection is an environmental hazard and decided to clear it by court
order. But the plan has provoked uproar among concerned Kaufdorf locals and
more than just a few other Swiss residents. A campaign to preserve the site
was started when an open day was held. The organisers expected about 50
people to attend, but 10,000 turned up. Franz Messerli, whose father
founded the car cemetery, said: "We never expected such interest. Our aim
is to preserve it for posterity as a national work of art."
Mr Messerli's father, Walter, opened what was originally intended as a
vehicle breaker's yard in 1933. A part-time racing driver and scrap-metal
dealer, he was fascinated by cars and even taught himself to be a mechanic.
At its peak, his collection numbered about 2,000 vehicles.
Et ils font les cowboys !!!
Regardez ces gendarmes ils se permettent d'être au dessus des lois, ils
font les cowboys (remarquez le stylo dans l'écusson d'un des motards,
très pro comme tenue ! ) et se vautrent lamentablement !!
Pour que le contrôle soit valable il faut :
Un OPJ qui vous présente le laser avec la vitesse dessus
Le gendarme qui a effectué la contastation doit pouvoir donner : la
marque, le type et la couleur du véhicule, mais surtout SA PLAQUE !!!!
Marre des contrôles illégaux !!!
