A Skoda going 140 mph!
My experience with Germany in general and the Autobahn in particular is very limited, but from what I've seen of how people behave on the autobahn, it's a thing of beauty. To the average Finnish driver, "driving carefully" means driving slower than everyone else, including joining the freeway at 20-30 less than the posted limit. These people also expect you to move over to make room for them, even if there's plenty of space in the lane as is. Sorry, but I'm not going to change lanes just because you don't know how to drive.
I loved seeing little old ladies in 1-liter Polos handling onramps like it's all they've ever done in life. Not to mention the gang of 911's charging past our bus, being chased by a rep in a diesel E class that probably just wanted to get to the office in time.
