Along the autobahn
Advantages of driving in Germany:
1) Cars are in much better condition because of tough inspections
2) Licenses are much harder to get, with much better driver training
3) The autobahn speed limit is "whatever's safe" up to 155 mph
Disadvantages of driving in Germany:
1) When you fly off the road at 120+ mph, you find out why oak was once used as armor on ships

We sometimes get tourists here who only want to do the Autobahn. So they rent a fancy sportscar or fast BMW and try to race from Munich to Berlin. They are of course not used to the speed and some aggressive drivers around here. Death is often the end of that tourist trip.
