Understeer Causes Massive Head-On Crash in Russia

Ladas are not renowned for the complexity of their chassis, or their excellent road holding. Throw in a little splash of rain and every Lada is an accident waiting to happen, especially in wide bends, on roads outside of towns.
The driver of this Lada was clearly going much too quickly for the road conditions, and he understeers straight into the car with the dash-mounted camera. The impact is extremely violent and, while we have no concrete information on the matter, the Lada driver definitely didn’t walk away unscathed from the incident.

Sadly, this illustrates just how important good suspension and tires are, as well as a good dose of common sense. The car lacks the first two, and the driver clearly lacks the latter.

Do take care when driving on slippery surfaces, even if you are at the wheel of something modern with all-wheel drive and ESP - you should still have your wits about you at all time.
