    It depends. There's some parts where traffic gets congested enough to be limited to under 60Mph. I saw a pic showing I think the equivalent of 30Mph, but I can't recall where.

    You would have no choice but to pull over and rid your rear view mirror from the brightest light source known to mankind.

    Seriously turn some of them off they shine in my windows at night.

    well, technically it wouldn't be coming up behind you, it's just an illusion created by the blinding lights.

    If you see an Audi, BMW, Mercedes, Porsche - any of the German bunch you should move out of their way.

    If you plan to travel over 100mph you should have your front foglights on.

    Hand gestures will get you heavily fined.

    Anybody know anymore, it's quite interesting to find out things like these.
    What a bunch of BS. Only the first one holds any truth. The mythical status held by the autobahn is just rediculous. It's just another highway with the same rules as any other highway, except without the speed limit.
    If you should see a man walking down a crowded street talking aloud to himself, don't run in the opposite direction, but run towards him, because he's a poet. You have nothing to fear from the poet - but the truth.

    At least 60 H/p extra at the flywheel.

    the backwards lights just add drag.

    *note; advice dished out by IB4R corp. is only an estimate. values can vary as much as 60 H/p in either direction.

    any relation to any scientific fact, living or dead, is purely coincidental.
