The Punisher!

  • on: 26 Feb 2013 12:29PM
A Russian bus driver who was tired of being cut up by sloppy drivers and insurance scammers has hit upon an ingenious solution - ram them off the road.

Alexei Volkov, who works in Zelenograd, a city 23 miles north-west of Moscow, has become an internet celebrity after posting video footage of his smashes with rude and careless drivers. He is known as 'The Punisher' after the ruthless comic vigilante who dispenses brutal justice.

Mr. Volkov, by his own admission, has already has had more than one hundred traffic accidents.

He started recording the smashes in 2007 to defend himself from insurance scam drivers, who sharply cut in and brake in front of other vehicles to cause a smash and then make fraudulent claims.

He has earned another nickname, 'Teacher of Teachers'. In Russian slang drivers who try to assert their road rights by intimidating other drivers are called 'Teachers'.

And I thought some British drivers were bad! 

Can I ask the driver's name if I go to Russia and get on a bus, I don't want to be on his one!

I think I'd  rather be on his bus than any other vehicle around him.  >lol<
