    In CA i know to get your drivers license you need to take a few classes, which gets expensive. If they offered those same classes in schools they do in germany it'd be nice.
    But your stupid if you think, in germany they teach 16 year olds how to drive at 150mph+ speeds. Cause I'm sure they don't wanna encourage it
    I never said i was a good driver at 16 ( had my mishaps) but after years and thousands of miles and driving school i think i am good. i never said drive at 150 but car dynamics is never tought here. youd be stupid to assume what i said instead of reading.

    Interesting driving fact...

    About 7500 miles of German autobahn have a permanent 81 mph (130 km) speed limit. Thousands more have "dynamic" limits, meaing they change constantly based on traffic and weather. Germans are not taught how to drive fast. They are taught how to drive well, and stay to the right except to pass and not street race like morons. With the varying speeds between trucks (generally going about 45 mph or less) and Gunthers in BWMs, generally going about 130 mph, the middle lane on most German highways can be a terrifying place.

    State tropper was wrong or got a BS story from those who lived.

    I've been in a fire dept for 8 years and have yet to see one person thrown from a vehicle that was wearing their seat belt. Even when rolled multiple times.

    very true. if they were ejected, they did not have seatbelts on.

    they also have a lot less recks than we do here. the cops there actually go after people passing in the right lanes, rather than people speeding in the fast lane.

    You know in my town, morons who think they're god's gift drive around on streetbikes wearing no helmets doing wheelies with their girlfriend on the back in a miniskirt.

    I think the cause of most "racing-related" accidents is incompetence and pure, unadulterated stupidity, as well as a misunderstanding of physics.
