Still, there are more than enough lorries/caravans on it to be buggered regularly. With me worst so far have been some Durch pensioners enjoying the landscape at a whopping 25 kph from Reutte to Lermoos...

In all honesty, it's not only the Dutch. Nobody around here likes to be stuck behind Germans. As fast as they may be on their autobahns, as primitive and sloooow their driving styles are over here. The ones in Mercedes vehicles are the worst I find..

Sightseeing Germans are exactly like that and a royal pain in the #*?% It's almost like they deliberately block the road and make sure nobody passes. Old Germans in general are like that it seems. The average speed on the German Autobahn dropps by half every Sunday between 11:30 and 16:00.

So little tolerance here

I also don't like to slow drivers, but that's life.

But I dislike more aggressive tailgaters. Some idiot gave me flashes, tailgated me and made gestures with his hands yesterday on the B16 near Ingolstadt, where you have 60 limitation because of many intersections, also motorway entry/exit. I was driving 70. Ah, and after not more than 1km I had a truck in front of me...

The efficiency of the Rettungsgasse as experienced on the A12 near Wattens this morning:

All locals and freight traffic move to the far left and right, leaving a comfortable space in the middle for Italians and Germans to pass through, who obviously have no idea what hit them...
They must think Austrians are the friendliest people on earth!

Especially since Germans have no idea what a Rettungsgasse is from their homeland...

However, I can't see anything wrong with going 70 in a 60 zone. The guy behind you was just a royal ******* I guess

Germany also uses the Rettungsgasse, at least in Bavaria. Every time an accident happens that is announced on radio they also say "Bilden Sie bitte eine Rettungsgasse für Einsatzfahrzeuge"...

Yes but in practice it's not happening until emergency services arrive. Not anywhere in Germany.

I knew about this thing, but I believed it only applied on 3-lanes motorways, in order to create two open corridors (between left and center lanes + emergency lane).

On 2-lanes motorways, the emergency lane should be enough.

No. The emergency lane is usually not used as "Rettungsgasse". It is always b/n the left and the 2nd left lane independent if the carriageway has 2, 3 or 4 lanes.

Now I know it In Germany, I've never seen it applied when traffic was stuck, nor in Switerzland... I don't remember being stuck in Austria.

^ yes, but slovenian version is different. while in Austria vehicles on the right lane are requested to move right on the shoulder, in Slovenia they are only requested to move right to the white line separating the driving lane and shoulder, so the shoulder remains free in addition to the emptied space in the middle.

I was stuck once on the A8 near Rosenheim, during a violent snowstorm two trucks collided an long queues formed. People started to form Rettungsgasse, I had no idea what was going on but just copied them...
