Why are all the cars crashing into the side of the tunnel? Is it that poorly designed?

the tunnel is like your veins and the cars are blood vessels and when you get drunk the bood vessels crash and end up making an entertaining video.

>At least people in Russia mostly get into accidents because of icy roads, instead of alcohol, underage driving, and overaggressive drivers who almost never stay the freaking right distance behind each other.

Yes, but that still (even more so!) doesn`t mean you have a right to drive like a freaking immortal and build roads which only meet European demands because they can only bear south-european climat. Russia`s main two troubles are fools and roads, we always say

It`s written two, three times within this thread.

And beacuse you took the time to create a new account and authenticate it instead of clicking a maximum of 4 times the "next" button...

Read the thread you god damn moron. It`s allready written there sh°t for brains.

"But Koala, isn`t it a double standard seeing as you didn`t know the name of the song, asked for it and somebody answered?"

Nope, because it was not written anywhere and other people can use this information if they READ THE THREAD like any decent person would.

Praise you KoalaMeatPie for mentioning Louis Hippolyte! I passed through there many times and thought of it while watching the vid.
Apparently people in charge of this tunnel in Russia haven`t heard of warning signs. At Louis Hippolyte, there`s a sign at the entrance prohibiting lane passing. They should install such a sign for this `death` tunnel that would also warn of slippery conditions. Winter tires should also be mandatory there.

Old video.

Simple solution is an unpopular one, toll both. Stoping traffic forces drivers to slow down.

Heated coils would stop the road icing as well.

Nice to see perspective on icey roads from some one who lives in "Southern US".

I live in Canada.
And can tell you that it`s the drivers` fault for not driving properlly.

Here, we get 40-100 car pile ups when it gets REALLY bad.

We know ice, we know snowy roads, we know ice roads.

We know cold.

Notice how, even when it`s slippery, those other cars can slow down in time to avoid a collision?

If they drove slower and less recklessly, they wouldn`t be in that situation.

Now shut your little jail-bait trap about things you don`t know.

And btw, all those problems you listed are common threwout the world.

Are you all complete morons? This is freaking Russia, people. No, I`m not saying Russians can`t drive. Half the people here in *America* can`t drive. Up in Russia, the temperature goes down to negative 38 degrees, the road freezes, and people can`t help sliding. At least people in Russia mostly get into accidents because of icy roads, instead of alcohol, underage driving, and overaggressive drivers who almost never stay the freaking right distance behind each other.

Can`t bust on those drivers too much... most of the crashes they show are only single car issues. Even when the next cars back are close, they almost always stop in time to not get added to the wreckage.

Am I the only one who reads others comments before posting? THERE IS ICE ON THE ROAD. Part of the tunnel is under water and water leaks in. It is hella cold there at times, like negative 30 something degrees, and therefore the water on the road freezes. U would think the idiots that live there would learn to slow down..

"maybe someone put wax on the road."
that is by far the dumbest comment i have ever heard... ITS F(_)CKIN RUSSIA! the roads are frozen and slippery it also could be from oil slicks, if there was oil there not to long ago, and it dried up, and its raining outside, the tires could get wet and then drive over the oil to revive it, thats when roads are the most slippery, the first few seconds that it starts raining cuz the oil gets revived.

According to Wikipedia the reason for the crashes is : The tunnel runs under the Yauza River, and water leaks in at some points. When the temperature reaches negative 38 degrees Celsius (as during the winter of 2005), the road surface can freeze.

I`ve seen this before and it`s because of ice on the road and people driving too fast (and probably not having the right kind of tires on their vehicles). They were ALL going -wayyyy- too fast, even if it weren`t icy and just wet you still would have had some crashes due to hydroplaning.

Sorry to double post, but I forgot something. When it cuts to that particular camera shot, just before the truck enters the shot you can see the tell tale marking of the yellow and black diagonal lines that mark the entrance to the service door.

Ok, to answer the query of the second truck from Apple_18, Marchhare123, Jetmark, and Triangular.

Lauraly was on to something regarding the mystical second truck. I watched that part about 3 times myself before I saw it. If you pause it at exactly the right moment you can see the second truck coming out of a service door on the side.(The right side of your screen) Takes a few times before you see it.

Unless the second of those two trucks was being dragged (pushed) head on down the tunnel, I don`t see how it obeys the laws of physics or reality in general. There is no tunnel entrance where they crash.

Even if there was ice in that tunnel, most of those accidents were because people were driving too fast and changing lanes without signaling or even to check if the next lane was clear for them to enter.

Also, where the hell did that other truck come from? I watched that part of the video over and over again, and I still can`t figure it out. From the way the cab of the second truck was crushed, it would seem that it entered from the side, but I can`t see an opening there, and that would really be the mark of the most idiotic tunnel design ever.

Wow, and here I thought people were bad drivers for spinning out and drifting sideways on the highway in snow. These people can do it on dry road! They need to implement the kind of speedbumps we have where I am. Theres a part of the highway called Dead Mans Curve, they have speedbumps that are more like rough areas in the road(instead of actual bumps) They need to put those all up and down that tunnel, maybe save alot of lives, car insurance premiums and traffic backup.

Some of those crashes gave me goosbumps.. I don`t think the music detracted from the video.. I think it added a strangness to it, and kind of reflected the attitude of everyone who just sort of sped by those accidents.. To be fair though, even if they wanted to stop, WHERE could they?? It didn`t look like there was any shoulder to pull off onto..
