Coming soon to a theater near you

The Fast and the Furious: Sofia Smash...
Bulgarian prosecutors are investigating a new gambling game in which drivers defy death by speeding through red lights for bets of up to 5,000 euros ($7,400), the chief prosecutor's office said Thursday.

Known as 'Russian road roulette', the driver must jump red lights at busy intersections at high speed and not crash into any other cars or pedestrians, according to local media reports. Onlookers also gamble on the result.
Um, guys, they have things called "sports" and "cards" now. I know these things were rare during the days of Communist oppression, and they don't offer the thrill of being maimed or killed, but they're fine things to gamble on. They also have the added bonus of rarely taking out innocent bystanders.

(Except in certain countries where they take soccer waaaaaay too seriously. Or if Raiders fans are involved.)
