I am mental on the roads. My average speed on the motorway is about 110mph. Average speed on Park Lane, 80mph (albeit late at night) Average speed on London roads 40-60 mph, you cannot get away with going any faster than that, too many speed cameras, and the problem in England is that you do not just get a fine, if you keep speeding thy ban you from driving. The longest distance is from Calcutta to Bangkok, boy that was a jaunt. The roads are terrible in Myanmar and Bangladesh, you cannot do more than 90mph, unless you want to hit the roof, literaly, India and Thailand are pretty good for roads though. I never tailgate, but I do sometimes use the hard-shoulder to get through. Wait, I suppose I do tailgate, if you count flashing the car in front from long distance.
Riiight. I've never ever
seen traffic move at 40mph in the City, or even close to that velocity. And a driver who drives as you describe in the UK would be summarily imprisoned, no matter how much money he made. Especially were he not lily white..... And if you'd ever been to Bangladesh, you would know that 90mph is simply not a reasonable velocity for more than literally 2 or 3 metres of the country's roads. Try 70-80 km
/h. as a more realistic max speed. As for me, I'm more or less a patient driver, though I do enjoy the odd spirited romp through a technical mountain road. The highest velocity I've ever attained on a public road is probably not much over 110mph, on the Autobahn. Max distance? Well, including a ferry ride I took a road-trip from Benelux to Tunisia once.... Peace, JG
