Russian Drivers Know Best - Tripod Trucks Are OK

We have seen our fair share of Russian driving videos with overloaded vans and trucks, but we’ve never seen anything this ridiculous and dangerous.
The man driving this GAZelle light truck obviously has a complete disregard for the safety of others, as he has overloaded his vehicle to the point where the front left wheel is lifted clean off the ground. We don’t mind a little bit of wheel lifting ourselves, but we prefer to see the inside rear wheel of hot hatches rising from the ground under very hard cornering, not this!(

We honestly hope he was stopped by the cops, or at least somebody with a bit of common sense to tell him that such things should not be done under any circumstances, as overloading your vehicle (especially one with 1970s technology, like the GAZelle) is a very bad idea and should not be attempted under any circumstances.
