Russian Bus Driver Punishes Errant Drivers

This guy is full of awesome. Fuckheads looking to pull an insurance scam by getting rear-ended, on purpose, get some bumper loving from this bus driver.


Quote:
The bus driver from Zelenograd, Alexei Volkov already has the score of more than one hundred traffic accidents!

Tired of the rude drivers who don’t give the right to public transport, cut in and even set up accidents for the insurance fraud scams, he decided to buy a dash camera. Here is a compilation of few videos from his Youtube channel showing the latest accidents from his rich career.

Alexei has developed a very uncompromising driving style and if any car cuts in his lane, he immediately punishes the offender. For his driving style he got the nickname “teacher of teachers”.

[ Note: in Russian slang the drivers, who try to prove their rights using various dubious maneuvers, are called "teachers" (with negative connotation). For example, when "teachers" are irritated by other cars moving slowly in front of them, they will overtake those cars and then suddenly brake. They do it because the driver who hits their car from behind is usually acknowledged guilty of the collision. However, in the case of our bus driver there is a video showing the real picture! ]

Due to his videos Alexei Volkov is well known in Russian internet and many people sympathize with him. Here is the interview, which Alexei recently gave to the local news portal.
Here's the interview:
Quote:
- Have you been found not guilty in all cases due to the video records?

- In all cases of scams I was found not guilty. In the past the traffic cops sometimes tried to argue, but I always succeeded to prove my point through the court. And now everything works like a clock – they judge objectively.

- Do you have problems with the management because of the large number of accidents?

- If there is no fault of mine, the management doesn’t care. The bus usually gets only minor damage. If the damage is more serious, they just wait for the insurance payments and then repair. For example, in the last accident the front bumper was seriously deformed after I hit a truck weighing 3 tons.

- And what is the attitude of your colleagues and traffic cops to your principles?

- It’s not about principles. Take my latest accident. What could I do? Swerve to the left in the oncoming traffic or suddenly brake and maybe injure the passengers? In both cases my license would be revoked and I’d have some serious problems. While the happy bastard would just leave the scene. I am not interested in such outcome. The cops just grin. As for the colleagues – I haven’t asked what they thought.

- So, how many accidents have you had overall? Have you posted all of them on YouTube?

- In total I have had more than one hundred accidents. Of course, I haven’t uploaded all of them: in my channel there are only the obvious scams and some colorful collisions. Besides, I acquired the dash camera only in 2007.

- Have you ever got complaints from the passengers, who were unhappy that they couldn’t get to their destination after the accidents with scammers?

- That’s a strange question. The passengers escaped uninjured, what can they complain about? That’s nonsense.

- So, none of your bus passengers has been injured in accidents?

- No, not a single passenger was injured.

- How do the scammers behave after the accidents, when they realize that they will obviously be found guilty of the accident?

- After the accident, nobody realizes that they will “obviously be found guilty”. It’s still a common misconception that those who hit from behind are always at fault. So, they behave arrogantly. Though later it’s funny to watch their painfully pathetic explanations in the office of the analysis group which investigates the accident. By the way, the freak from the last video considered himself right even after cops explained him the situation and he hired a lawyer.

- And how in general will you evaluate the behavior of Zelenograd motorists from the point of view of the bus driver? Do they give the right to a bus departing from the bus stop?

- What can I say? They usually behave in a rude manner. I often see how bus waits with the turn signal switched on for one-two minutes, and these “morons” still continue squeezing in. However, the situation is gradually improving. Also, due to my educational work.

there needs to be a bus driver doing this between bridgeport and granville on number 3 road in richmond. like from the casino to richmond center. except no one would understand why in the fuck they got rammed by a bus. they'll be like "haa wha happen??" or they would keep driving as hitting shit is a daily occurrence for many richmond drivers. it would still be fun to watch, hell i'd pay the $1.50 or whatever to ride the bus

OT, but had to rant. It frickin' costs $4 to skytrain downtown now. That, plus parking at Casino and ride back (assuming late night and concession fares) it's cheaper to drive and park downtown than to Skytrain, which is kinda BS.

I still find this one of the funniest things in the world. I make sure to stay far away from cars with a C sign on the back

i remember when i was a kid that novelty store san francisco used to sell novelty t-shirts, signs, and decals like the "C" but it also had the caption "if you <racist name for chinese> don't drive" as a play on words to "if you drink don't drive." even back in the late 80's i thought it was crazy that they put out racist stuff like that...

This bus driver doesn't even bother braking after the first tap.
He just keeps bumping the last car.

Was the bus too slow so these "teachers" got provoked?
Some of them seem to just cut in sharply even though there's a lot of space in front for a safer lane change.
Some of them even slow down as well.

The bus probably "cut" in front of them, even though they're supposed to yield. Then they cut off the bus driver, and brake check, to "teach" the bus a lesson.
