More than 35,000 people died in road accidents in Russia during 2008. The number of death toll due to road accidents is higher than anywhere in the world. The number of road accidents in Russia has been steadily on the rise for more than 10 years now. Russians say the ever increasing number of deaths on the road is a threat to national security.
Why do you think there are so many accidents and deaths on Russian roads? Some people blame the bad quality of roads, others say too many drunk Russians are on the road. I say it is all because of Russian behaviour, low education, brutal manners or complete lack thereof, lack of respect for others, aggressive nature and the type of driving habits which are direct result of the above factors.
