Scandinavia and the World


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

I've had Indian customers tell me that most of India is like France in this respect. Except in many parts of India they don't even paint lines on the road. My father said Cairo was worse; cars, trucks, buses, bicycles, mopeds, chickens, camels, people, all doing their own thing with no lines, stop signs, or traffic signals. Biggest one wins I guess.

@Danelaw Exactly what I was going to say! By far the most terrifying driving I've ever experienced was in Rome. It was like lanes and traffic signals were just vague suggestions.

I actually think Italy -- Rome mainly -- is worse than France.

I just visited France. That is honestly very true

In finland, as a cyclist, you realize that all drivers are trying to kill you :D

It is known everywhere in France that Paris and most big cities in France are the worst places to drive in.

@ChocolateBread Being a HongKonger I must agree! there are even Youtube videos of Chinese drivers! Also from my experience in the UK their driving involves a lot more about bloody wankers and so on. A lot less tally-ho and politeness

The teapot-baguette thing made this comic great.

I'm French, and I must admit: it's totally true. We drive like there is no highway code.
