The Russian webcams that are most famous on the Internet are dashcams, small cameras with flash memory that are easy to install on a car's dashboard. They are famous for capturing strange scenes on the highway that sometimes turn into viral videos.
Russian dashcams are common because the Russian legal system rarely accepts first-hand verbal accounts when dealing with reports of collisions. Russian drivers also use dashcams to record exchanges with traffic cops, locally known for being corrupt.
Russian dashcams have been the source of several viral videos. This includes a recording of a meteorite falling from the sky into Russia. Because of the plethora of dashcams, this astronomical event was filmed from many angles and locations.
