Russian dash-cam videos have gotten popular in the last couple of years, and so manufacturers have started selling dash-cams for use in America. But there’s a reason why “American dash-cam” isn’t a good search term. We just don’t have people here driving Ladas down the opposing lane of traffic at 80mph while listening to accordion-techno. Or hulking box-trucks that tip over and spill exploding gas canisters into a road without lane markings. The most you’re going to get is a guy who turns left through an intersection when he doesn’t have the green arrow, and if you yell BLYAD! IDI NA KUY!!! at that, you’re just getting yourself worked up.
