My opinion about the German speed limits (or the lack of it) is that they should implement more dynamic speed limits. No limit is okay in easy traffic, but on the A1, which is full of trucks, they should put a speed limit of 140km/h. When you overtake a truck now, you always have some sucker on your bumper so close you can't even read his license plate in your mirror. Sometimes they are signalling too with their headlights. Go racing on quiet Autobahns, not on busy ones.

uf, this signaling is so annoying i hate when idiots do that when i'm overtaking. for god's sake, i'm not in left lane doing 100, but at least 130 (what is limit here) od more, but not, allways there has to appear an idiot in bmw, merc, audi or some large vw and signaling me because i'm not doing 180 as him

I wish people in the US of A became a little bit more aggressive toward those ones who block the left lane. Here, you flash at them once - and they start dialing 911 to report a road rage...

Its a secret,but when they do such things to me(not coming close behind me,but flashing),I let them go,and them show them that their BMWs and such is sh*t with a sh*t driver...I usually "push" them off the road. It really feels funny that they cant do 150 uphill,whereas my Nissan Almera can do it without struggling.

i let them go too, but i cannot move while i'm in line with a truck that i'm overtaking! their chicken brains cannot understand that they should wait me to overtake because i don't have place to move! sometimes they piss me off that much that i slow down to minimal speed that i need to have to be faster than overtaken vehicle so my overtaking lasts loooong and he must wait behnid me, but i avoid to do it because i'll piss him off and he'll do some nervous shit after that.

@Alex: sometimes i think that you've created a monster with 911

So why are you overtaking with such a low speed in the first place.

He says he overtakes with at least 130km/h. I wouldn't call that a slow speed.

A lot of German suckers racing thinks so. They seem to think the road is yours if you drive over 160km/h, and everyone has to get the hell out of your way.

I don't mind driving fast on quiet Autobahnen, but lately i drove a lot on busy German motorways, like the A1, average speed between Bremen and Hamburg was about 90 - 110km/h, but some guys immediatly race to 160km/h for a couple of hundred meters before slowing down to 90km/h again. That's completely useless, over 70km, they only won like 2 minutes.

Well if you approach with 180km/h and some sucker drives with 130km/h on the left lane then it really pisses me off.

^ Well of course it does, but that's the speed limit in many countries (or it's even less), and in Germany it's the recommended speed.

Quite arrogant to think all people who would to drive 130km/h should stuck behind trucks all the way because you want to drive 180km/h all the time.

Most Autobahns have 3 lanes though, so there should be plenty of space.

Yes, but the situation described by "goschio" happens also a lot on the busier 2 lane Autobahnen.

And trucks are overtaking each other all the time, at least in Italy. And there are always suckers doing 110 km/h in the middle without overtaking anyone. Often I just overtake them on the right lane, beats me, I'm not into changing two lanes, and then two lanes again to get back. It's not so dangerous, if you're watching the situation and sticking right by the emergency lane.

i'd rather call the 180 guy a sucker. why do we need speed limits if i'm sucker with mx speed allowed or 10-20 above it?

btw, i'm not sure that you in USA have even that high limits as 130, and speeding is much harder violation than in Europe. does it mean that you're all suckers if you don't want to be arrested?

In these situations, I overtake on the left lane because it's much more fun (changing the two lanes) than just proceeding straight...

Yeah, and it is way too expensive to operate. It costs 25% of all revenues.
