Germans nature to stick to the rules is legendary.
That is why my father (who worked for Germans) consider former German law-obeying nature and communistic system (some of them were forced to live by) the worse marriage in human history.
Than Mackhack it is only human to idealize things from the past and from other homeland. How many 10-20 years old cars have you seen in Germany?
Spending some time in Germany generation ago, I idealized my memories about the driving skills (sure comparing to California it wasn't hard at all)
Than on my visit few years ago I run into a***hole who blocked me with his BMW6-something for long time. I was driving Rover.

Kajtek1 I really don't know why you're bringing in politics now into this thread. And certainly you got your facts so wrong. Germany never was or is a communistic country. Get your facts straight, Germany has a social democratic parliament and is everything but communistic. And what is wrong in sticking to rules?

And about driving, at least we don't get a license handed for $29 without any training. Cars here in CA are weapons on 4 wheels. Not for nothing a license cost 2k Dollars to get in Europe because we Europeans have to go to a driving school for 6 months (3 months theory and 3 months of driving on country roads, Autobahn, at night, through your home town/city and the like). Sorry but I just can't let this go.

Don't know how much they paid for DL, but those Trabant drivers were terrible.

You know you're living in a communist nation when the words "democratic republic" or "people's republic" appear in its official name. (In North Korea you get both, to eliminate any doubt.)

East Germany doesn't exist for 23 years anymore But I give you kudos for looking up the wiki link about East Germany
