    Tell me your driving stereotypes in your country.

    Example: Philippines, swerve here, swerve there, swerve everywhere!

    India- traffic, traffic, and more traffic.
    and idiots coming right in front of you and almost crashing,
    and a whole lot of road rage.

    China: scooters and mopeds constantly trying to "thread the needle" between cars on busy roads.

    In Germany we have:
    The business man: Tailgating in a black Audi or BMW, blinker left all the time (on BMW only if the optional blinker install package was purchased) and flashing Hi-Beams until you move over
    Granny: Doing 70 in a 100 zone and driving almost centered so you can't overtake
    The scared: Already going 20kph below the speed limit and braking for every tiny corner down to 60-50
    Tailgaters: You going the speedlimit but some degenerate has to be driving inside your boot for no reason, and if you speed up, they will follow you.

    I think I got all of the normal ones?

    Here in Dallas, Texas, 80-100 mph is very normal on highways. You see it everyday. At night you will hear LS, Coyotes, superbikes, anti-lag and the occasional supercar on the highway. The street scene here is insane. I love it. God I love Texas.

    EDIT: One bad thing here is people hogging the fast lane, but I'm sure that's common everywhere.

    Left lane hogs on Interstate 5 (I-5) in the Pacific Northwest in the US (especially California and Oregon) is really terrible. I've been to other states in the West, Midwest, and Northeast and these other states' drivers are much more courteous (as in getting out of the left lane) than the ones in California and Oregon. The queue of cars in the image below can usually span for miles going under the speed limit (I-5 speed limit is already set low at 65 mph but people somehow go 55-60 mph on a pencil straight interstate). I'm really not sure what's going through the mind of the person leading the herd lol.

    • 90% of those salvages being Priuses and being used for Uber or Bolt because they are cheap
    • Rich kids driving bimmers bought by their dad and trying to race every fucking car on the road, probably has valved exhaust, stage 1 at best
    • Pseudo mafioso driving gwagen thinking they are Russian gangsters
    • 50 year old government workers driving Prados, land cruisers, lx570s

    Perth, Western Australia:
    Everyone drives too fucking slow, everyone sits in the right lane (we drive rhd cars), everyone overtakes you then slows down, everyone has a pogo stick on the accelerator, no one can go over 2 kilometers under the speed limit in the right lane, everyone speeds up as you over take them (especially with the elderly or on country highways, usually both). And NO ONE, i mean absolutely no one can take a slight curve on a highway with out slowing down to 85-90 (kmh). Then of course you have angry young people like me who just want to get where their going faster than everyone else. Funny when i was driving the Valiant (for the two days it ran that was) everyone around was a little more behaved. Probably because they didnt like having some prehistoric monster bearing down on them in the rearview as they do 90 in a 100 zone...
