Buckle up!


Years ago I talked with some Swedish people who told me about a French friend of theirs who was super proud that her car only had one dent, which came of as pretty bizarre to the Swedes.

I've been to France two times, and if you've been there too, you know how much sense that actually makes. Almost every single car we passed had several dents and scratches, and if you think people in your area are aggressive drivers you have not been to France.

And the reason why people drive like that in France is way more bizarre than you think, but I'll make a comic about that soon.

Yes we're pretty agressive drivers in general.
I'm however nominating spain and italy for even more dangerous specimens.

If they drive their tanks like that, then it is no wonder, nobody was there to defend paris....

You should come to the States and try New Jersey. It's basically Mad Max. When I was in France traffic was a breeze in comparison.

I actually did see an accident once where a car ended up upside down on top of another car with both cars pointed in the same direction. Not sure HOW they managed that. The one time I went to Barcelona and took a taxi through a traffic circle convinced me that that is where NASCAR got its start.

You should look up Russian dash cams. Literally far worse than anything France could do. I saw a 30 second clip, and man I'll tell you it was hilarious and terrifying

It is said that in every European country, they drive on the right hand side of the road; except in England, where they drive on the left, and France, where they drive in the middle.

Fun fact, we even have a saying here in Denmark, called "French Parking", it's when you're to park by the side of a road, but there's only just enough room, then you use your front bumper to push the car in front of you so that there's room.

On the other hand there's Germany. To him cars are holy. His garage is a little church and he would kill others for even just touching his car.

I thought it'd be more likely Italians, when in Rome I get people to play spot the undented car.

My experience is, the further down south you drive in EU, the more insane the traffic becomes.
