Apart from popular gender ideologies, after my small investigation, I've realized women are definitely worse drivers than men.

As I've told you several times, the city changed my street from multi-way to one-way. Many drivers had been driving following their minds and breaching the no entry wrong direction sign.

The situation got better after a week of police checks. So I've been spending an hour on my window everyday (usually by washing the dishes as the sink is located below the window) and checking who would breach the sign.

Here are the stats:
The sign had been breached 3 times an hour in average.
From all the week, only one case was a man (on dirty, cheap pick-up). All other (14) were women, the majority of which were calling through phone (without using handsfree). They did not even noticed the sign or slowed down. Just passed like nothing.

Instead of "we go the extra mile" they should have written "we go the extra foot".

Some people wouldn't approve of either. ;-)

Two American-styled trucks on a European road. How realistic...

Unfortunately we don't have cool trucks in Europe. Some 99% of long-haul trucks are cab-over.

It might just be me, but I find American styled trucks to be incredibly ugly, I just don't like the way they look. I'll take a European Scania or Volvo over a Kenworth any day

I wonder if you can repair some engine troubles while idling with European cab-over style trucks. You need to fasten everything in the interior too, because the whole cab tilts over.

Of course you can, my father has no problems with that whatsoever.

It's a movie with Jason Statham in it. There's usually nothing realistic about half of the movies he's in, so I focus on the details
