There was a youtube video of that, IIRC. Very reckless driving, what if someone pulled onto his lane? Kabam!

I'm not saying it isn't dangerous,

But there is a marked difference to how highways work in Europe as opposed to the dozy creatures on North American highways. Actually I think Canada is worse than the US when it comes to highway driving.

That'd have to be about 300 he's doing.
When the camera pans down it shows that car doing 150.
I've done 210 on an Autobahn and yeah got passed by Porsche's and so on. smile

The three weeks I've spent in California back in 2001 were a fascinating experience in how relaxing driving a car can be. I really enjoyed it, FAR less stressful than here in Germany.

And I say that as someone who likes to drive fast on the Autobahn.

I was once driving my old VW Beetle in the middle of the night on the corridor between East Germany and West Berlin, a large Merc zoomed by and disappeared in front, I swear I nearly stepped off my car. I thought my Beetle wasn't moving, that bad.

Cheers,
Slug
