    Off topic OT: Damn I just got a speeding ticket!

    The road I travel by my home thousands of times had a cop car coming the opposite way and he got me. He did a quick u-turn and flashed his lights. I was coming up to the crest of the hill so I could not see him coming up. I was doing 66mph in a 50. Bummer!

    A speed execess of 25 km/h would cost 40 Euros here in Germany (and 1 point in the central traffic register) 26 km/h would cost already 50 Euros and 3 points!

    But speeding here is very cheap compared to other countries.

    Have a nice day and watch out for cops better next time,

    Hey Adanac what's it like to drive on the Autobahn? Is it true that the junk cars are the kind that are passing the high end cars?

    Re: OT: Damn I just got a speeding ticket!

    I think most of the time the high-end cars are giong faster than junk cars. But nowadays almost any car can go over 200 km/h so it depends most on the driver, not the car. I am driving mostly at 140 - 160 km/h, but I have a big van that not been made for high speeds.

    Three years ago when we had less children I had a sedan that could go 231 km/h but I seldom went faster than 200 km/h because so high speeds I find tiring when driving for several hours.

    If you are used to high speed and did it a lot in your youth, you can drive slower without bad feelings and enjoy it when you are older (I'm 36 now).

    Have a nice day,

    Hi Allan and Ad,

    In the Netherlands the speeding tickets are also not very expensive, but you loose your drivers licence when you are speeding over 40km/h. I actually always drove around 130/140 in the past, which is an acceptable speed in a good car. I believe in Germany and The Netherlands you won't see many junk cars (we have to check our cars every year to pass a test, called APK).

    Nowadays I drive much slower. Not that I don't like the speed, but the gas prices here are pretty high and driving above 120km/u increases the gas consumption drasticly. It's also more relaxing driving 110 to 120 here. There are also a lot of speed traps, specially in the 100km/h zones.

    In Belgium there are not many speed traps, but if I was caught there speeding around 10km/h, I'm bankrupt! In a few years time it's suddenly getting safe to drive on the Belgium Highways.

    Cheers,

    Sjors

    hi,

    just out of curiosity: are you referring to MPH or KMH?
