After spending two weeks in Germany this summer, it was really sad to have to drive on our roads here again. There the "typical" driver focuses on efficiency and safety from my experience. None of the "me first, screw you" attitude so prevalent on roads in the USA. One thing that is awesome there is that they patrol the autobahns with unmarked video capturing cars looking for tailgaters. If you are caught tailgating at speeds over 100kph, you lose your license for 1 to 3 months. Tailgating there is defined as 1/3 of the required gap (required gap is 1/2 the speed, so if 120kph, gap is 60m). Imagine if we had laws like that here in the US? Overnight, probably 75% of the drivers would lose their licenses. Of course seeing that unrestricted sign was a great part of driving in Germany too. Thank goodness we don't have that here since we have a driver's license requirement threshold lower than the lowest common denominator.
