I think this classification of drivers on the surface conditions of their country is ridiculous. I think..., no I am pretty much sure, they have something like underground garages, garage houses, or different type of ramps at interchanges at least in those countries.

Of course. Probably not curves like in mountainous areas, but cars with gear sticks and brakes work as good nevertheless.

No, Germans are the worst, trust me. The Dutch are well better prepared when heading for Mayrhofen.

I'm back in Ingolstadt

I drove to Prague because in Munich at the consulate it is horror. People are still waiting there to vote for 12 hours straight. The government in fear that diaspora will vote against their candidate didn't open all consulates for voting and provided only few cabins and stamps so that people will not succeed to vote.

When I saw at 8am that there were already a few thousand people waiting, some even from yesterday, we decided to drive to Prague, it was the closest place to us besides Munich. We drove 3 hours to there, voted in 20 minutes, then walked some 2 hours, ate lunch, then drove another 3 hours back

Pardon me, but I don't think that a garage ramp and a 20-km-long two-way but one-laned mountain road are even remotely comparable.

They are. If we take account of accelerating only. If we compare whole driving, they are not. I agree.

Being able to drive is never "accelerating only".

@cinxxx that is a case for institutional court

exemplary citizen cinxxx goes on a trip to Prague just so he is able to vote, meanwhile there are lots of people complaining about their country's politics and refuse to vote

Many Dutch would just go home if they see a line that begins outside the building.

Bravo Cinxxx and Bogdymol!

There are some steep descends around Liège. I fear the most drivers that fail to keep their lane on curved descending highways.
As for steep roads in Belgium, actually Wallonia has quite a lot and I don't find the roads in the Alps to be much steeper than those. They are just a lot longer.

and as road Uk would say, the roads suck

Balkan folks, remember you're no longer at war, not even during football matches.

Of course. A village with a population of nearly 4000 but 10.000 tourists in peak periods we've got pubs, hotels, B&B's, restaurants, disco's....

There is one about 15 km from here in Aschau, valley-outbound. And if you can't settle with just looking at the food, there is a "club" in Schwaz, our district capital in the Inn-valley.
