    Official/Unofficial Rules of the German Autobahns

    I just watched a program on Five TV on the Autobahns, a few official and unofficial rules were stated such as:

    It's illegal to flash the driver in front if you want to overtake, you must leave your left indicators on to show you wish to pass.

    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.

    Foglights? Are you sure?

    But don't you mean headlights instead of foglights? I find using foglights when there's no fog dangerous. Imagine doing that at over 100mph...

    Lolz.

    Would another official one be that all 'Busa riders must be travelling on one wheel at speeds up and including 200kmh?

    I heard that flashing someone is forgivable by an intending arresting officer if you stand on your head, playing the German national anthem on the kazoo and also give them a free pass to the Nurburgring for a year.

    Just about every german law is forgivable by following that set of instructions.

    of course you can't forget the 'turn around, touch the ground, cross my fingers I PLEAD INNOCENT!' manouvre either.

    Another rule....There are speed limits. Accidents do happen, and there will be signs to tell you to slow down.

    Not everywhere yet if I remember right. Speed limits are kinda high anyway.

    What the hell is that spider eyed hunk of junk doing on such high quality roads across an ocean? You don't deserve to be on those roads.
