RUSSIA - Russian youth sure aren’t messing around. Apparently in Russia, driving on the sidewalk to avoid traffic and putting pedestrians in danger is common, too common.

So these guys with the “Stop a Dirt Bag” movement… well they don’t say dirt bag, they say something a little more feminine-hygiene related, but you get the idea – have vowed to do something about it. And their videos proving it have gone viral.

The group body blocks drivers, forcing them back into traffic.

Most of the rebellious Ruskies admit fault, throw it in reverse, and go about their commute. But when they don’t things get wild.

They put a “Stop a Dirt Bag” sticker on the driver’s windshield- and it’s one of those paper sticker’s that’s near impossible to get off.

Sometimes the reactions are down right dangerous. Like the mobster look-alikes that get physical with the crew. When things are about to get out of control, a track suit hero comes out of nowhere with – an AK-47?! That neutralized the situation real quick.

Then there’s the joker who pulls a pistol and starts waving it around threatening to kill everyone that doesn’t get out-of-the-way. He says he doesn’t care about the police, but when they show up, he changes his tune.

Are there bigger problems in Russia that need tackling? Probably. But their message is universally true.

“Don’t drive on sidewalks. Don’t draw pistols or machine guns! And everything is going to be okay!”

Apparently in Russia, driving on the sidewalk to avoid traffic and putting pedestrians in danger is common, too common, Russian youth have taken matters into their own hands and the results have gone viral.
