Nah! Ghost rider would come close though.

Since I don't drive German Autobahns very often, I have
to say that most entrances to the Autobahn are very
confusing and a mishap in the wrong direction can happen
easily.

The other thing I don't like: the exits are so far inbetween,
one can drive 10 or 20 km before the next exit comes along.


Actually and seriously, I don't think that exits/entrances are confusing at all: you really just have to follow the signs. (And the 'wrong' site is clearly marked with a "NO ENTRANCE - ONE WAY" - however if you continue here you Calfornian habits ... :wink: )

In densely populated areas, you get exits every 1, 2 or 3 km's.

Sounds as good as the Dutch 'Uitgang' - Gangtui with left hand traffic that would be.

I'm better now Steve Wink
But once I did get a letter from the local DMV (Department
of Motor Vehicle) that warned me of being amongst the
3 % of the worst drivers http://www.mainzelahr.de/smile/schuechtern/icon_blue.gif

"worst" translates into speeding. I don't have accidents only
speeding tickets.

CJ, "Only speeding tickets" adds greatly to your car insurance premium. ;(

I but your signature tag into a translation machine and this is what it said

I saz ûf stones And dahte leg with legs. Daruf satzt I ellenbogen, I hete in mine hand gesmogen Daz kinne and min wange.

from which I deduce it all about leg legs and hand.

Do you think if I put this back in and translated it back to German then back to English then did this again a few more times, I would get some more words out?

I don't know but the Autobahns around Munich/Stuttgart confuse me
now - not so much the Ausfahrt as the Einfahrt Mr. Green

Yeah, I drive Californian style, and thank goodness I don't have
a German license, there is nothing they can take from me....

Go to page 11 and read, what I answered to your northern neighbour.

("Westerly", re Stockport, I think.)

Cicerone, traffic school (which I can do online now)
eliminates 1 ticket per year, but I do pay a higher premium
regardless <sigh>

I'm just born to speed Laughing

Almost Francis, they won't let me as I wish I could....

I always try to get only less than 40 € - so I don't get points at all. (Besides, this doesn't have any effect to the insurence, only to the license).

You should perhaps better ask Jeevers, the Guardian's Aristotle or the head of history department of a famous local secundary
I've no idea.

So whats it all about.

Head of history is busy
Ask Jeeves is crap
Guardian Aristotle is about politics not poetry
