(Source) Dubbed “The Punisher,” Alexei Volkov takes a zero-tolerance approach to being cut off while driving his bus on Russia’s roads. Day or night, rain, snow or shine, whenever an errant driver gets in his way, Volkov rams his bus into the offending vehicle without apology — and records it all on his dashboard camera. The bus driver then documents the collisions by posting the video footage on YouTube. In a recent interview which appeared on the Red Hot Russia website, Volkov claimed he’s had more than 100 accidents.
“The situation is gradually improving … due to my educational work,” he said. Volkov says his passengers have nothing to complain about because none have been injured. And what does the bus company he works for in Zelenograd, Russia, think about his vigilante antics? “If there is no fault of mine, the management doesn’t care,” he said. “The bus usually gets only minor damage. If the damage is more serious, they just wait for the insurance payments and then repair [it].”
I like this guy. I get angry ALL the time when I’m driving. Someone cuts me off, someone doesn’t let me pass, someone drives too slow, basically any little thing pisses me off. And what do I do? I let it boil up inside of me. Maybe flip them off or honk, but usually just get pissed and have a heart full of hate. Well that’s not healthy. That’s how people have heart attacks. In the words of Clayton Bigsby, if you have hate in your heart, let it out. And that’s exactly what Alexei Volkov is doing. He’s a man of action. You cut him off, fine, just don’t be surprised when you have a 10 ton bus up your asshole. Oh you want to complain about it too? That’s cool, just like Alexei said, if the damage is serious the insurance takes care of it, no skin off his back. Serenity now. Just crushing cars with no regard for human life. Do you Alexei. Do you.
Chicago Bus Drivers really aren’t much different. Some of the scariest moments of my life have come while playing chicken with CTA Bus drivers.
