The good, bad and weird things we're enjoying

Russians at their best in dash cam footage

Russia doesn't always get the best press (see the recent political decision to ban adoptions by U.S. parents) but this compliation of dash cam video presents a different angle of a country with a difficult past, showing people with heart helping their fellow man.


Shots include men helping the elderly and injured cross the road, helping people with car trouble, picking up a child wandering in the street and taking him to safety. 


Dash cameras, often associated with law enforcement in America, are very common in Russia due to the prevalance of scammers initiating car accidents to demand financial settlements. It's the same reason there was so much video footage of the meteorite strike in Russia a few months ago. But in this case, it can be a beautiful thing. And a little good music certainly doesn't hurt.

Thank you for publishing this. I know Russia has its own set of problems with thugs, but this is quite a contrast to the behavior we've seen of late right here.
