Re: driving etiquette

  many thanks for that jim it had me roaring with laughter it strikes me as
just plain dangerous to drive in cali i will stick with the autobahn at
190kph there is traffic law here in germany and it is enforced rigourously
mainly due to the revenue it generates for each stadt.  the "volvo driver"
bit had me in tears
  there are some absolutely terrible countries to drive in here in europe
but at least most of them observe the fast slow lane rules and dont overtake
in the slow lanes this is so dangerous .
  there is a trend here in germany towards the roundabout and to be honest
the germans are terrible at roundabouts ! for me comeing from the uk i am
totaly at ease with them my test runs in my cars involve specifically going
to the two new local ones we have here it generally involves me getting
round it no time at all wilst takeing in open mouthed germans wondering what
they should be doing and when!
  there are times when there is a lot to be said for agressive driving ie in
london if you do not go for it you will not get there you will be left for
hours tryingto pull out into the main road .
    my local big city here is hannover it is large but the roads are well
laid out and allthough relatively hard nosed drivers there are courtious and
polite .
    there are less accidents on the german autobahn than anywhere,s
motorways in europe however those that do happen tend to sadly be fatal for
at least one driver involved so far in the 4 years ive lived in germany this
time from the 400 strong regiment i am with 4 people i new have become
statistics! germans drive using every bit of there ability and concentration
you do really need to when your scooting along at 220kph and somebody pulls
into the fast lane from the middle to pass a lorry passing a lorry hes only
doing about 160kph! your soon up behind him!
