Yes, I'd like to take my 79 over there but it'll most likely self destruct at 120mph...... :trumpet::trumpet:
Bingo, that's why its extremely dangerous.
I don't disagree but statistically there are not more accidents than elsewhere....just my opinion: I find it a lot more dangerous having to drive 70MPH on an empty interstate for miles and miles straight... it's so boring that you can't concentrate and fall asleep ... going 100+ MPH keeps you awake and alert :yahoo:
comparing apples and oranges. Germany is what? about the size of Vermont?
Large differential speeds are a problem. I always slow down to pass if i'm driving really fast.
No , Germany is half the size of Texas with a population of 85 million versus Texas 25 million....
They had this huge discussion about the speed limit in the late 90's... you can go as fast as traffic allows, therefore 160mph is only possible at night or far outside of any populated area (which is hard to find in such a small country)...
If there were way more deadly accidents than in other European countries or the US then they would have introduced a speed limit years ago.... now most of the Autobahn is limited to 130kph (75mph) and that's mainly for environmental reasons because the tree hugger party got like 10% or so .... damn I'm glad I got my a$$ out of there :drink::drink:
Well the intangible is that they are much better drivers and have more brains.
