Another Reason to Appreciate Your TriMet Driver

Posted by Wm.™ Steven Humphrey on Tue, Mar 12, 2013 at 10:59 AM

It's true: while some TriMet drivers are dicks, others are heroes. HOWEVER! I think that even in their dickiest moments, they are not dicks like this Russian bus driver is a dick. According to NBC News, this bus driver—known as "The Punisher"—rams the back ends of drivers who cut in front of him, records it on his dashboard camera, and then uploads them to YouTube as "an educational service." Alexei "The Punisher" Volkov claims he's had 100 such "accidents." Watch.

From NBC:

"The situation is gradually improving ... due to my educational work," he said.

Volkov says his passengers have nothing to complain about because none have been injured.

And what does the bus company he works for in Zelenograd, Russia, think about his vigilante antics?

"If there is no fault of mine, the management doesn’t care," he said. "The bus usually gets only minor damage. If the damage is more serious, they just wait for the insurance payments and then repair [it]."
