Driving in France with an Englishman was quite interesting. At first I thought I my view of French driving had been colored by my English chauffeur, but later I talked to a French girl who said, "As soon as you learn how to drive in France, you realize that everyone are out to get you"
Me: "But only in Paris, right? They must be more polite out in the countryside"
Her: "No" XD

@Arethusa can you imagine local police anywhere in a densely populated area/city of Asia, trying to enforce laws that keep mopeds and other such small vehicles off the sidewalks? :P

@MacEanruig They really drive insane in Beijing but the biggest problem there is all the mopeds driving on the sidewalk.

agree with Sasmito. it's even worse in Surabaya + Sidoarjo, east Java.

PH traffic is worse. One time I was in a bus on the way home, the driver was speeding...trying to overtake the bus from a rival company to the next bus stop. The distance between the buses was like 6 inches, and we were running at 100km/h. I was like, "HOLY SHI..."

Another oddball of PH traffic is the way pedestrians are treated. If you're going to cross a ped crossing, you'll have to wait until there are no vehicles in sight--because virtually no-one would stop before the ped crossing to let the pedestrians cross. If you try to cross while there are still vehicles, you'll be at the receiving end of every curse/insult known to man.

I just arrived in Paris. I second this.

I remember when I went to Beijing several years back that the Chinese are the most insane drivers I've ever seen anywhere...

Since I live in the middle of nowhere, I'd be terrified to drive anywhere in Europe.

Happens quite a lot in the U.S., just add profanity!
