As an American in Germany I have come to the conclusion that Americans would have to fundementally change their driving styles as a country. While the average person can drive 100mph with confidence here in Germany, I have found driving 70 mph on anything but the most remote interstate a hair raising experience. In my near 4 years in germany travelling the auto bahns at 100+ speeds I have seen only a few accidents and a majority of them were caused by Americans. While back in the states for a week I saw 5 major accidents. There are obvious reasons: High drivers licence costs ($1000 plus); no passing on right; if you ain't passing you, stay over.
