Ever been to Paris? The French can't drive :P

Of course, here in Britain we do our best to make driving as unpleasant and confusing an experience as possible (probably a good thing, except that we also have rubbish public transport...)

I have to say it's partially true. Some french certainly needs driving lessons LOL
Parisians mostly, they don't know that the "no parking" sing mean. They also honk if you stay here more than a second after the fire went green.

French dosn"t what a bus stop is, and stop there too, or use buses ways.

You mean you actually wait for the green light (you should start moving when the yellow gets turned on) :eeeeeh:

The British can't drive either, but you can't blame them. You'd have a hard time keeping it on the road with this in your rear-view mirror:

Well the order might be different.
In the Netherlands, it goes like this:

- when turning red: green - orange - red
- when turning green: red - green

But I remember it being differently when I was in Strassbourg.

I think there are millions of prejudices on Americans (okay, that's a little much).

- They are all fat
- They are all retarded (hillbillies etc.)
- You get sued every month
- ...

Well I can only think of these.... too bad.


thank you for correcting

:eeeeeh: Yellow means the fire is going to be red. So if you follow the rules, you stop (unless you can't do so safely)

sued, methinks. Driving in the States can't be difficult - nothing but long straight roads and 90 degree turns

Over here we have amber between red and green both ways - flashing when it's turning green and solid when it's turning red.
