Another Failed Overtaking Maneuver from Russia

This isn’t really anything new, however, it still shows us what not to do and when and where not to overtake. Russian dashcams have provided us with so much valuable information on how, where and when on the road not to do stuff.
The driver of this Lada estate attempts to overtake a truck. However, he tries to overtake in a bend, which is something that should never be done, under any circumstances, and no matter how big of a hurry you’re in. The dashcam from the car following the truck clearly shows how the driver of the Lada just wanders into oncoming and begins an overtaking maneuver, failing to see the big tall pile of metal speeding towards him.

Of course the two clash, but thankfully, not as violently as they could have, and judging by the severity of the crash, nobody was hurt. One simple piece of advice follows: Only overtake when the road is straight and you have good visibility - your life may depend on it!
