Korean Drivers Are Bad But There May Be Worse

Korean drivers are notoriously bad but I can tell you from firsthand experience that Russian drivers are at a completely different level. I do have a theory. Korean drivers do not know any better but while Russian drivers know better, they just do not care!

The sheer size of the country, combined with lax, and often corrupt, law enforcement, and a legal system that rarely favors firsthand accounts of traffic accidents has made dash cams all but a requirement for motorists.

“You can get into your car without your pants on, but never get into a car without a dash cam,” Aleksei Dozorov, a motorists’ rights activist in Russia told Radio Free Europe.

I recommend foreign drivers in Korea get dash cams. Better yet get multiple dash cams facing not only forward but backward. I have seen local Korean police collude with Korean citizens in attempts to “frame the foreigner.” It can happen.
