I would imagine a combination of several factors:

1 - very weak or weakly enforced traffic laws
2 - lower standard of living makes people respect authority less
3 - cold harsh weather making driving very unsafe
4 - vodka!!

Any one of these factors is in itself a good reason for this but any combination is a recipe for a disaster.

+1
Many of these "accidents" were preventable. I did notice a lot of traffic law dis-obedience particularly at intersections. The guy who almost got hit at gas station walked away like he soiled himself.

the reason there are so many dash cams is because there are very harsh laws regarding hitting pedestrians. some try to fake injury and sue the driver which is very hard to prove that you did not hit that person. so people cover their asses and install dash cams
