Pigeons are the flying rats of the world. Sometimes they like to pretend they are rats and scurry around the streets. In Russia, pigeons don't fly -- they stand in the streets and cause car crashes.

I am not the only one who has pressed on their brakes to avoid hitting a pigeon in the street. While other drivers probably don't think twice about running over a pigeon, I am right along with this guy in trying to avoiding running over the poor bird.

Unfortunately, this guy did stomp on his brakes to avoid killing the bird, who I bet didn't even flinch with that car inches away from its beak. Once the grey car stopped, a red car grazed it's side then another car came and hit the grey car's rear. All this unnecessary drama for a dumb pigeon.
