Luckiest Man In Russia

Discussion in 'The Pub' started by MelbourneMick, Jul 18, 2012.

  1. I reckon I would be buying a lotto ticket after this....and probably some new reg grundies too

  2. missed him by THAT much lol
    do they have lotto in russia?
  3. What I find interesting is that the vehicle with the camera appears not to have made any substantial effort to brake... just dodge. Pretty poor driving IMO.
  4. In Communist Russia the Lotto wins you !!

    By the looks of their vehicles I don't think general maintenance plays a big part either!
  5. he did but then new he was not going to stop so tryed to dodge you can hear the brakes at about 8-10 sec mark
  6. Pulled out in front of a truck. Australian solution? Paint truck fluoro.
  7. That was just fcuked up - a truck SMIDSY'd a truck. :roll:

    Very very lucky man.
  8. I heard an application of brakes but not what I'd call "a substantial effort at braking" which is why I used the term 'substantial' in my original post.

    Either the brakes are faulty or the driver simply isn't pushing hard enough.

    No way are they achieving even the minimum .25g deceleration let alone the greater than .5g that most heavy vehicles in our fleet can achieve.
  9. Lucky this debacle didn't result in a garage fire as well...
  10. They tend to prefer roulette I am lead to believe!
